Free Online Talk – From house to home: Mel Backe-Hansen’s guide to the 20s house

February 4 @ 2:00 pm GMT

Discover how our ancestors of 100 years ago led the way for transformation of housing across the country.

After the First World War, there was a revolution of housing across Britain. The population demanded better housing for all, more investment into council housing, and changes to mortgages – all of which brought into play a much bigger rethinking of housing provision that would dominate the 1920s and extend into the 1930s.

In this fascinating talk, Melanie Backe-Hansen, house historian and co-author of A House Through Time, will take us into the world of houses in the 1920s.

Melanie Backe-Hansen is an independent historian, writer, and speaker, specialising in the social history of houses across the United Kingdom. Melanie is a research consultant for the popular BBC programme, A House Through Time, and to accompany the series Melanie has co-written the new book, A House Through Time, with historian David Olusoga.

What’s Online is a series of talks and events delivered by The National Archives’ experts and special guests. Talks last approximately 30-40 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.

This online talk will be presented on Microsoft Teams.
