TNA podcast - the history of learning disability

The latest podcast from the National Archives at Kew is entitled He is so silly he would rather have a half pence than a shilling: Discovering the history of learning disability. It is a 48 minute long talk by Simon Jarrett about "the history of people with learning disabilities, known variously over time as idiots, imbeciles, defectives and the mentally handicapped".

To listen to the talk visit or download for free from iTunes.
