There is another chance to hear Emma Bromley’s talk about this remarkable manuscript.
The Black Book of Warwick: Oligarchy, factionalism and urban politics in the Sixteenth Century
Emma Bromley, B.A. (Hons), MRes; independent researcher.
The ‘Black Book of Warwick’ is a fascinating and invaluable manuscript for understanding sixteenth-century urban politics. In this talk, Emma Bromley explores the emergence and evolution of a local oligarchic elite through the eyes of its writer, the irascible town clerk of Warwick, John Fisher. Often neglected by urban scholars, the rise of factionalism during the years 1562-88 reveals much about the long-term implications for corporate politics in this historically significant borough.
This talk will be delivered via Zoom.
