The Georgian Era was a period of immense change in Britain, immortalised in the work of writers such as Jane Austen and architects like John Nash. For such an evocative period, the question must be asked: what was life really like? In Life in Georgian Richmond, the authors present a rare opportunity to hear the authentic voice of the mid-eighteenth century through the writings of a newly discovered diary, giving a short but intense portrait of a woman immersed in up-to-date Georgian social activities in a bustling and fashionable town in Northern England. With this book, travel to mid-eighteenth century England: to fairs and markets, horse racing and travelling players. Learn of the changing role of women in Georgian England and along with the authors, unravel their secrets to bring alive society in this vanished world.
