Unsung Women of Somerset
Helen Pugh is the author of ‘Unsung Women in Somerset’ (published Nov 2023) a new book that charts the lives of remarkable women in Somerset from pre-Roman to modern times. Discover women with courage, kindness, innovation and even some who smashed the rules! Meet the woman who had two funerals. Meet the African princess who survived and thrived despite the odds. Meet the woman who voted… before it was legal. Meet the openly gay artists whose generosity touched their neighbours. Meet the queens and saints and witches and workers and much more!
