From gentlewoman Celia Fiennes’ accounts of her excursions in the late 17th century, via Daniel Defoe’s best-selling book Tours Through the Whole Island of Great Britain in the 1720s, to the enormously popular 20th century King’s England Guides of Arthur Mee, this course charts more than 300 years of change in the landscape and settlements of the historic counties of Suffolk and Norfolk.  Using the original observations and recommendations of travellers to this area in the past, combined with a wealth of period paintings, antiquarian engravings, vintage postcards and modern photographs, this will be a fascinating and unusual perspective on the history of East Anglia
