Event description

Description

EXPLORE Lifelong Learning in association with Tyne Bridge Publishing (Newcastle Libraries' publishing arm), present John Grundy, one of the North East's favourite TV historians and EXPLORE's patron, who turns his attention to the history of Newcastle upon Tyne. In his inimitable style he tackles questions such as…

  • Where did the Roman bridge at Newcastle actually lead to?

  • What did St Wilfred choose as a holiday souvenir from his trip to Rome?

  • Why did medieval Newcastle need town walls?

  • How was Newcastle reviewed on the 17 th century version of TripAdvisor?

Always knowledgeable, often funny and sometimes irreverent, this talk is perfect for anyonewho is passionate about our great regional capital.
