A very brief history of pubs (Part 1)

Victoria Wells presents a very brief history of pubs (Part 1).

In this short video I start to talk about the history of pubs. In this video I’ll cover pubs before the 20th century as pubs steadily became more like the pubs we know today.

In this video I talk about a book by Paul Jennings and if you’d like to know more about the history of pubs I can highly recommend it. Details are as follows (available from all good booksellers): Jennings, P. (2011) The Local: A History of the English Pub, The History Press
