BBC History magazine - Vikings and WW1 Days

For those of you in the UK, and not (like I will be) planning on being sound asleep (as I'll have landed at 0730 on Saturday)...

If you're around the Bristol area, BBC History magazine are putting on a series of talks about the Vikings and WW1. They do cost £60/£70 to get in (including lunch) but they do look rather interesting.

Sat March 15 - Vikings Day:

  • Janina Ramirez - The Vikings as ‘Other’: Are ‘They’ In Fact ‘Us’?
  • Philip Parker - Ruling without Kings: State and Society in Viking Iceland
  • Gareth Williams - Ships and Society in the Viking Age
  • Dr Ryan Lavelle - Fighting the Vikings: War and Peace in Viking-Age Britain
  • Judith Jesch - Treasures of the Sword-Trees: Viking Poets and Poetry
Sun March 16 - First World War Day:

  • Mark Bostridge -1914: England’s Fateful Year
  • Margaret MacMillan - Accidental or Inevitable? The Outbreak of the First World War
  • Dr Nick Lloyd - Hundred Days: The End of the Great War
  • David Reynolds - The Long Shadow: The Great War and the Twentieth Century
  • Panel debate/Q&A
