The talks cover a variety of local history subjects from ‘Historical Crimes of King’s Lynn’, to ‘Wisbech Born: Octavia Hill (1838-1912)’ and the intriguing ‘The £6,000,000 Corpse: The ‘Forgotten Treasure’ of Hardwick Road Cemetery’.
The talks programme is part of a series of events connected with the Museum’s Pat Midgley Research Centre, which received Heritage Lottery Funding last year. Facilities for local and family history research include a reference library, archive rooms, a reading room and the town’s only Sound Archive.
