Take a romp through history, led by Dr Mike Smith, archaeologist and honorary senior research fellow at the National Museum of Australia.

This month, we’ll be discussing The Diary of Samuel Pepys: A Selection by Samuel Pepys and Robert Latham (ed.), Penguin, 2003.

Pepys was an eyewitness to some of the key events in English history in the 1660s – the Restoration, the Dutch War, the Great Plague and the Fire of London. His diaries document these tumultuous years while providing an insight into his personal life.
