Bristol Radical History Group

Bristol Radical History Group seeks to uncover the hidden histories of Bristol and the West Country and to challenge commonly held ideas about historical events. The group attempts to approach this history from ‘below’ by examining the actions and perspectives of those involved rather than the views of the contemporary establishment histories.

Established in 2006, BRHG has hosted over 90 events, attended by several thousand people and has published over 30 pamphlets on topics varying from piracy and anarchism to poaching and John Locke.
