The Charterhouse from Restoration to Revolution

The Charterhouse from Restoration to Revolution: recorded lecture

Our online lecture by Dr. Cathy Ross, Honorary Research Fellow at the Museum of London, and consultant to the Charterhouse, is now available as a recording to view online. In the lecture Cathy shares some of the new stories that have emerged from the Great Chamber project, and in particular its focus on the seventeenth-century governors whose portraits now hang in the room. Did the restoration of Charles II after the Civil War usher in a period of calm, or was the opposite true? The lecture will explore the ups and downs of Sutton’s Hospital and its governors during this remarkable and turbulent period.

Dr Cathy Ross’s museum career has focused on the challenges of representing the complexity of cities within a museum, and has published widely on museums, contemporary collecting and London history. Her books include Designing Utopia: John Hargrave and the Kibbo Kift (2015), London: The Illustrated History (2008), The Romance of Bethnal Green (2007), Twenties London: a City in the Jazz Age (2003).
