Our Miscellany this year covers a wide range of topics.
Our new patron, Professor R. J. Morris, offers 'Whose Time and Whose Place: Searching for the History of Twentieth Century Leeds'. In it he examines the problems faced by historians embarking on a study of the city in the last century.
Michael Collinson offers two fascinating articles. One unravels the history of Headingley Hall whilst his investigation of Robert the Dyer provides a rare insight of people in the Leeds area in medieval times.
Eve Bradford probes the complex problems of enclosure in her important study, The Enclosure of Common Land in Headingley-cum-Burley, 1828-34; Conflicts of Interest.'
Henry Pawson's eye-witness revelations, providing a rare view of what life was like in Victorian Farnley, are edited by David Thornton.
Finally Peter Meredith, our librarian, has offered our members a rare chance to see some of the rich material held in the Thoresby Collection.
