The London Magazine Podcast | Episode 4 | A Discovery of Ancient Literature

0

We were recently contacted by Reverend Christian Mitchell of the church of Heathfield in rural Sussex, who had made a remarkable discovery. In one of the rectories attached to an old church in the area, they had found an almost full collection of the original London Magazine, dating from 1733 to 1770, which were believed to have belonged to the Reverend of that era. 

In the collection we discovered not just poetry and literary essays, but maps of newly discovered parts of the world, new inventions of the age, political discourse, and the burgeoning financial movement of the era. 

We went down to Heathfield to inspect the findings, and interviewed Reverend Mitch about them. It was a truly fascinating experience, and we hope to do much more with this newly discovered archive.

For now, listen to the link above for more information.
