We've now held two of our Spring Seminars and they have both gone really well. All the presentations have been recorded, and you can see them on our YouTube channel. We recommend that you subscribe to the British Agricultural History Society channel so that you receive a notification whenever a new video is added. We would appreciate it if you 'Like' the videos as well as watching them, as this will increase the channel's visibility. (Tip: YouTube uses the same log in as Google.)
Please register now for the third seminar, to secure your place:
