Complete History of ThatchamThis talk by Nick Young looks briefly at the whole period of human history within Thatcham starting with the Palaeolithic, Old Stone Age, and coming right up to the present.

He will look at the locations of where our Stone Age ancestors were and the evidence of the Bronze and Iron Ages.

Passing then into recorded history, locally at least, the first mention of Thatcham will be discussed along with the development of the Parish Church and the Chapel of the Borough.

A manor house, the coming of the railway and anvil firing are just a few of the other topics that will be covered.

Nick Young is a web developer, previously a teacher, with a passion for history.
