Description

Victorian Village Life

This booklet paints a vivid picture of life in a Victorian village in Warwickshire. It is fully illustrated and shows villagers going about their daily lives. The year is governed by seasonal activities, agricultural work, and a range of entertainments. People go to prison or the workhouse, villagers gossip and send anonymous letters; some families prosper and others are often in trouble with the authorities. Weddings and Jubilees are celebrated, illness and deaths mourned; sometimes the community is scandalised by a murder or other crime. We can eavesdrop on all this through the sharp eyes and ears of the local schoolmasters who wrote down events as they happened over a hundred years ago.
