In the beginning of recorded history, women were rarely mentioned in written works and it is the intention of this course to bring forward what women added to the History of the English-speaking people. When men went to war, as they often did, what were the conditions that the women were left to face on their own? Providing food, shelter and care for her children; attending to crops and harvesting; feeding and watering stock – a lot of responsibilities to deal with. And then, her husband may never even return from the war. We will be discussing family trees and stories about the Royal families of England and Australia – it
is something I know a considerable amount about and there is plenty of information available.
