Dart historian Patrick Chaplin offers a surprising insight into the role of women in the social history of darts. He challenges the commonly held belief that women in the interwar period rarely participated in darts, or other pub games, because of their restricted access to the 'masculine republic' of the tap room, the public bar and the vault. This podcast was recorded live as part of the Pub History Society conference on the 20th February 2010 at The National Archives, Kew.
