Brown, Cynthia (speaker, female)
Wilkinson, Robert (speaker, male)
Part 31: Covered a broad range of topics. Always interested in history initially for pleasure, Vaughan College gave her opportunities as did the Northampton research project. Thankful that she did not get certain jobs! The Prison Service did not have a clear career path for instance. Clear career structure later on. Made some good friends. Used contacts in a Renaissance East Midlands project on the depiction of food in museums. No regrets in her professional life. Very proud of her children. Very pleased when she gets positive feed back from people she has taught. Most pleased with the Saffron Lane project. Most enjoyable was the history of Wharf Street as well as the Victoria County History of Corby.
