Event description

Description

Historian James Evans discusses some fascinating individual stories and the variety of reasons for the astonishing migration of English men, women and children to North America during the 17th Century - a movement which has had such a defining impact upon the modern world.

James Evans is a historian and television producer. He wrote a doctorate at Oxford University, and his thesis on the national question in the new state of Yugoslavia after World War I was published as a book in 2005. He has worked since producing historical documentaries for well-known names like Niall Ferguson, David Starkey and Michael Wood, as well as helping to write some of the accompanying books.

This is a free event but please do register your interest as these events tend to 'sell' out.
