General History - Leader: Margaret King
Our first meeting will take place on January 21st 2019 and we hope to continue in the early afternoon of every third Monday of the month at Gravesend Central Library.
If you are interested in joining, please contact Margaret, preferably by email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Members decide what topic they all wish to research, such as, a period in history, a famous person, or an event in history. Then each member will be given a subject to research and later be given 7-8 minutes to present their findings, and give the group time for discussion. Refreshments are organised with a tea rota. If members are unable to attend the meeting, they should send the results of their research to the leader by e mail. This approach will enable a broader view of the subject, and may involve members reading another person’s research.
if members are interested, the aims are to enjoy the subject; it will not be academic, the research will not be marked, nor will there be any detention! Just come to enjoy and find interesting facts about world history.
