History Worldwide

Group Convener
David Pashley

We are not historians, but we are all fascinated by history. We try to look at the less familiar parts of the world, and explore science, trade, art and the lives of ordinary people as much as monarchs and wars. It’s fun to see the connections in the jigsaw puzzle, and we find also that many present-day problems have their roots in the past. Having studied the 16-18th centuries, we went back to the decline of the Roman west and are now in what Europe calls the High Middle Ages

□ We are a co-operative group; there is not an “expert” leader. We take it in turns to research a subject and then present what we’ve learnt to the group. A talk may take five minutes, or an hour. Our experience is that members, however new to history, find it surprisingly easy to gather the facts and talk with ease in what is a small, friendly and supportive group
