From prehistoric times through to the present day, the hostile, yet wonderful, environment of the upper Severn estuary has required a life of adaption for both the natural world and man. Rose Hewlett will talk about the evolution of farming and settlement during the last 100,000 years, sea defences and ancient fishing practices.
Rose’s ancestors have lived on both sides of the River Severn for several centuries. Her attention to detail and infectious enthusiasm for bringing history alive enable her to accurately tell the story of the past. Rose has written several books. She has been researching the great Severn estuary flood of 1607 and is currently at the University of Bristol writing her PhD thesis.
