Online Lecture: Making your Fortune in 18th and 19th Century Birmingham

About

Birmingham grew from a market town in the twelfth century into 'A city of a thousand trades', due to rapid industrialisation and urban growth in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Join Jane Hornby as she explores how the city's economy became based on the production of pens, buckles, jewellery, buttons, papier-mâché and many other commodities. A steady influx of migrants into Birmingham came looking for work in the town and anyone was free to start up a trade and find their fortune.

This online lecture will be delivered via Zoom. Once you have signed up to the lecture, a unique invite will be sent for an online Zoom webinar, along with instructions of how to log on.
