Jane Austen 200th Anniversary

Jane Austen Silhouette

2017 was the bi-centenary of the death of Jane Austen and a group of heritage organisations in Southampton decided to re-assess the time that she spent in Southampton.

It might be imagined that there is nothing to discover about the life of such a well known writer, but a search through the Southampton Archives found a number of documents relating to her Austen relations who lived in the town.

This research was used in plays, for tours around the town, for talks and study days and a new publication about Jane Austen in Southampton.
