The Thames from Oxford to Windsor
Shaping history through the centuries

A talk by Peter Halman
Since the earliest times, the Thames has had a profound influence on historical events and on the lives of those who lived near to the river. The talk will consider the river’s role as a political boundary, a means of livelihood, a line of communication, a source of food and more recently, a highly valued social and environmental resource.
Peter Halman has lived in the Thames Valley for many years and is actively involved in local history and heritage matters in his home village of Wargrave.
