History

Vacancies
We are an informal participatory group who select our own topics, enjoy ideas in history, and also a certain amount of socialising. If you are attracted to looking into past events or people, or simply want to take a broader interest with others, the history group could be the one for you. Meeting in members' houses mainly in the West Hill area, we turn the spotlight each year onto a particular area of European or World History chosen by members. At present we are taking an interest in early modern Europe up to 1650. We are complementing this by looking at ‘history behind the headlines’ – that is the historical antecedents to events currently in the headlines. Past topics have included the European Enlightenment, the world after World War 2, the rise and fall of the Ottoman Empire, and the history of India. We welcome new members. Contact: Hugh by clicking on the icon above. Meetings are on Thursday afternoons, 2.30pm - 4.30pm, about once every 3-4 weeks.
