Medieval Wolverhampton, Georgian enamelling and high rise flats will be the subject of talks exploring different facets of local history next month.

Wolverhampton City Council's Arts and Museums Service regularly organises local history talks on a wide variety of topics, including 3 in June.

To coincide with Bantock House Museum's current exhibition, Georgian Enamels, A New Narrative, Helen Steatham will reveal the hidden history behind Wolverhampton's nationally significant collection of Georgian enamel objects in her talk on Tuesday (2 June) from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.

Paul Quigley will repeat his talk about The Block Capital Project, a community history project on high-rise flats in Wolverhampton and the Black Country, at Wolverhampton City Archives on Wednesday 10 June from 5pm to 6pm.

And former City Archaeologist Mike Shaw will talk about 'A Tale of Three Towns - Medieval Wolverhampton, Walsall and Willenhall' at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on Friday 19 June from 2pm to 3pm.

All the talks are free - simply turn up on the day.
