This is a group for members with an interest in, but not necessarily any specific level of knowledge of, History in general. Topics will normally be agreed with members but to “get the ball rolling”, the group leader will be presenting talks on each of the following over the first four meetings:
The Irish Potato Famine,
Hadrian’s Wall, Rome’s Northern Frontier,
The History of Sicily
The 1842 Retreat from Kabul
This would be a new experience for us all, but I would hope to end up with mixed group of members, some happy to volunteer to research and present talks on subjects to be agreed with the group and others happy just to sit and listen, maybe ask questions but under ZERO pressure to contribute.
Ideally the group will have around 10 members to start with. The group will run via Zoom, on the first Tuesday of each month from 2pm.
If you would like to join the group please email: Groups Co-Ordinator and include General History in your message.
