Archive of Dame Cicely Veronica Wedgwood


  • How to

The first series contains the correspondence and personal papers of Dame Veronica, including a group of letters written to her parents. The second series contains some of her working papers and provides an insight into how she carried out her research. These include notes and workings for some of her published works ( The King's Peace, The Trial of Charles I) but also detailed drafts of two unpublished works; one of which was to be the third in the Civil War series after The King's Peace and The King's War and was to be called 'The English Republic'. The third series contains printed material principally consisting of volumes of newscuttings with copies of Wedgwood's articles in Time and Tide, and off-prints of some of her articles and lectures.
