RSS sections/special interest groups, History of Statistics Section

Monday 08 July 2019, 06:00am - 07:00pm

Location Location: Royal Statistical Society, 12 Errol St, London EC1Y 8LX

Speaker: Janet Foster, RSS Archives & Records Management Consultant

About the Event: Take a walk around the Errol Street area on the borders of Islington and the City to discover the history that hides in plain view. Starting with the RSS building itself we will take in White Cross Street and discover the theatre that rivalled Shakespeare’s Globe, the prototype of social housing, a Quaker burial ground and Bunhill Fields, last resting place of a Romantic poet-painter, the creators of Robinson Crusoe and Pilgrims Progress and an early statistician, finishing with a drink in the Artillery pub – and where does that name come from?

The tour should last about an hour.

Refreshments: tea, coffee and biscuits will be available from 5.30pm.


Attendance is free, whether fellows of the RSS or not, but for practical reasons numbers will be limited to a maximum of 25.  

Pre-registration is required:
