Rebellion, Riot and Revel: The West Country in the Seventeenth Century

9th – 10th July 2011

 A Conference in Memory of David Underdown

Supported by the Department of History, University of Exeter and the Somerset Archaeological and Natural History Society

This two-day conference is to be held in memory of David Underdown’s unique contribution to the history of the West Country in the early modern period. Talks will reflect all aspects of David’s work, particularly in relation to the themes of:

• Political allegiances and commitment in the later sixteenth and seventeenth centuries • The nature and motives behind involvement in collective actions and protests • The effects of religious change and conflict in local communities • Crises of authority and gender within regions and localities • The cultures of ordinary people, and their bases in different local and regional settings, particularly sports, customs and festivities.
