This year marks the 350th anniversary of the restoration of the Stuart monarchy. To mark this occasion the National Maritime Museum is holding a spring lecture series assessing the impact of the Restoration. What specifically distinguishes Restoration culture and society from what went before and came after? And how did early modern British women and men accommodate themselves to the dramatic historical changes of the period?

Questions raised will include that of national identity and difference, such as what it meant to be English or British or both; what was the impact of international trade and ambition; and how did a developing commercial society deal with the changes of religious and royal authority? Titles include:

* The Stuarts: an Unsuccessful Monarchy, Prof Jeremy Black, Exeter University
* Science and the Stuarts, Dr Stephen Clucas, Birbeck University, London
* The Image of Charles II, Prof Kevin Sharpe, Queen Mary, London
* Theatre in the Age of the Stuarts, Julian Day, The Shakespeare Institute
* A Declaration of indulgence: Assessing the Stuart Restoration and its Legacy, Curator Richard Johns, NMM
* Republic and Restoration: Britain, 1649–1663, Prof John Miller, Queen Mary, London
