Know your Phaeton from your Curricle

Hazel Mills is a retired science teacher and a founder member of the Cambridge Group pf the UK Jane Austen Society and, until her move to Denmark, was a Regional Speaker for the Society.  Know your Phaeton from your Curricle is an illustrated journey through travel in Jane Austen’s time from the state of roads to the various carriages available to both her characters and her family and friends. The talk will allow the readers of Jane Austen to understand the subtle and sometimes not quite so subtle observations of her characters by the modes of transport she offers them.
