The Centre for Hearth Tax Research
In association with The Centre for Metropolitan History &
Birkbeck, University of London
Will be hosting an international conference on Restoration London, 22-23 September 2010 at the Institute for Historical Research, London.
The aim of this conference will be to reassess life and living in later Stuart London, drawing on the unique array of sources for the period, such as parish records, taxation returns, and the recently collated data from the London and Middlesex 1666 hearth tax return. All those attending the conference as speakers will be given priority access to this data and hence will have the opportunity to link it to their own work.
