Past Conferences on the Restoration

Organised by Professor Tony Claydon and Professor Tom Corns, Bangor University has hosted a series of major international conferences on the Restoration in Britain and Ireland since 2005.

These have been held every other year, and after a series concentrating on the individual decades from the 1660s to the 1690s, they are now based on themes that affected the Restoration period as a whole.
