Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire, Revolution
Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire, Revolution, opening at the National Maritime Museum on 20 November 2015-28 March 2016, will be the largest ever exhibition about the famous diarist with 200 objects from national and international museums, galleries and private collections.
Through Samuel Pepys’ commentary, based on excerpts from his diary, the audio guide provides a personal narrative for the historical events and objects displayed in the exhibition Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire, Revolution. The audio guide covers events throughout Pepys’ lifetime, from his first diary entry to his remarks on Charles II, reporting on the plague and the revolution, to his good friend John Evelyn writing of his death. The excerpts bring Pepys’ written words to life, and through his recollections we can understand what life was like in the 17th century.
