Meet the matriarchs of the epic living history series. Mandy Howarth and Heather Potter moved their families into poverty stricken Victorian London where their genealogy became a reality. They’ll talk about what life was like in the slum, they’ll discuss their motivation, what they learned and what it means to really explore the day-to-day life of your ancestors. To put it all in context, they’ll be joined by historian Carl Chinn who also appeared in the series.
