Online talk: Timeless play - Board games of the 18th and 19th century

Many of us have turned to board games as a lockdown pastime but this is nothing new, people have been playing them for hundreds of years. Eighteenth-century print publishers saw great potential in these games of chance, as educational games for children or just simply as recreational fun with themes exploring theatre, fashion and love.

Find out about the origins of some of these familiar games while diving into the entertaining 18th-century world of play.

Rachel will be happy to take questions, submitted via chat, at the end of the talk.
