After the blood-letting of the Seventeenth Century, England in these years was internally peaceful but the period is no less interesting. We tell the story of the first two Georges, Kings whose political importance is sometimes underestimated; Sir Robert Walpole, generally regarded as the first British Prime Minister; Bonny Prince Charlie, the Young Pretender, his bid for the throne and military defeat; and the Elder Pitt, whose war leadership laid the foundations of Britain’s later imperial power.

Tutor – John Stevens
A lawyer by profession until my retirement in 2013, I have a lifelong interest in history and an enthusiasm to communicate and share this interest by both the spoken and written word.
My interests are wide and include in particular the Stuart era in Britain and nineteenth century English and European political history.
I have also published work, and lectured on, aspects of Bristol history in the period 1800-1850.
