Book Launch – The day the sea came in: 1607 on the Gwent Levels
Come and meet the author of this new book, Saturday 23 November 2019, 11am-2pm;
The day the sea came in tells the story of a great tidal flood that happened more than 400 years ago on the Gwent Levels, South Wales. How did Thomas, Sarah and their families survive, and what adventures did they get up to?
Rose Hewlett is an historian. She has been studying the 1607 flood for a long time. Her PhD research at the University of Bristol is helping people to understand why the flood happened, and how men, women and children living on the low-lying coastal lands around the Severn Sea coped in its aftermath. Rose’s family has lived on both sides of the Severn Estuary for centuries.
There will be children’s activities and story telling during the day.
