Timeline 1800 - 1809
This Timeline is a work in progress, but even so it's still a fascinating insight into Arthur's 'turns' and the world around him. Currently there are dates for most of Arthur's years but there is much more to come...
If your town is mentioned here,and you have information and/or pictures of local theatres or halls why not email them to me and I'll add them to the site, with a link to your homepage if appropriate.
