Random Snapshots

Having maybe tired a little of all the 'improvement' that went on in the 17th and 18th centuries and, perhaps seeking a bit more blood and thunder in our history, we are making a change. Our snapshots this year will cover subjects taken at random from anywhere and anytime in the British Isles - such as the Viking Ivar the Boneless, Anglo-Saxon Kings Alfred (Wessex) and Offa (Mercia) and in more peaceable vein, Geoffrey Chaucer.

As in past years we will not (necessarily) follow a strict chronological narrative based on the reigns of Kings and Queens but, rather like Doctor Who in his Tardis, will travel freely through time from one week to the next.

A snapshot is all we can manage in an hour but if you go home afterwards and Google for more information our efforts will not have been in vain.

History at school was never like this! There are a one or two empty seats, why not join us.
