History 2

History 2 has now changed its format, to look at individual historical people who interest us. We’re a small group: each member prepares about a 10 minute summary of someone in history who particularly interests them - or even a famous name in history who they would like to learn more about. We then chat about them...so there is considerable variety within the hour and a half. Sometimes it leads us to do more reading on the selections later. Historical figures recently studied have included Field Marshall Montgomery, Tony Hancock, Sigmund Freud, Roald Dahl. Fidel Castro and Mikhail Gorbachev.
We meet on the third Friday morning of each month at 10.30am at the George Hotel, central Bridport, over a coffee/tea. We have a few places currently available - if interested please call Gwen Kinghorn on 01308-482270
