The Curious World of Samuel Pepys & John Evelyn

Pepys and Evelyn are two pivotal Restoration figures

Pepys and Evelyn are two pivotal Restoration figures and the most celebrated English diarists.  They were also extraordinary men and close friends with shared interests: diary-keeping, science travel and a love of books.  Pepys was earthy and shrewd, Evelyn a genteel aesthete but both were drawn to intellectual pursuits.Margaret Willes revisits the history of London and England at a time of regicide, revolution, fire and plague.

Suitable for over 16s and adults.
