Plague, fire, war… 1666 seemed to bring apocalypse to England, yet only a year later, John Dryden hailed it as the nation’s annus mirabilis.  Was this the year we reached rock bottom, or a time when men like Isaac Newton, Christopher Wren and Samual Pepys laid the foundations of Britain’s subsequent greatness?   Historians and novelists debate discuss the things we lost in the fire, and what rose from the ashes. Featuring Alexander Larman, Katherine Clements, Rebecca Rideal and chaired by Andrew Taylor.
