600 Paston Footprints

In 2018 it was six hundred years since the writing of the first of the Paston Letters, that unique collection of family correspondence giving insights from family life to English national politics in the 15th and 16th centuries. The Paston Heritage Society and the University of East Anglia have been funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to developed learning materials, on-line resources and community events around the Paston Letters. We are seeking the participation of all who would like to contribute to this major historical project. You can learn a little about past events and plans for the future from this and its linked sites.
