HISTORY

DESCRIPTION: Our group approaches history in its broadest context, i.e. it can be the history of anything and is certainly not limited to monarchy and wars, although they are also included. At each meeting a member gives a talk on their chosen subject which is followed by general discussion.

We began again in early September and are holding our monthly meetings at Peter Corcut’s house with the option of holding meetings on ZOOM when appropriate.

This group has space for more members at the moment. We meet once a month to listen to a
presentation by a group member on a topic which interests them. This is followed by discussion. It is a
friendly and informal group. We try to understand how a knowledge of the past informs the present and
guides the future.

Please contact Peter Corcut, if you would like to join the group or talk in more detail
about what we do.

The schedule of talks for this term is detailed below.
Friday March 18th The Irish Potato Famine.
Friday April 15th The Interesting Life of Olaudah Equiano the African. Published 1789.
Friday May 20th An unsuccessful French invasion of Britain
