London History Forum: Untold Stories
'The past has always been the handmaid of authority'. - J.H. Plumb
We’ve all heard that common lament that history is about dead white ruling men; but what of the untold stories that make up the rich fabric of history? Join us at this special London History Forum looking at how we can tell some of these stories to our students. From Anglo-Saxon women to medieval immigrants to the hidden histories of everyday life and ordinary people, these stories are just as valuable to our understanding of the past.
With a keynote speech from Robin Whitburn and Abdul Mohamud from Justice to History, great workshops and a FREE chance to visit the British Library’s new exhibition Maps and the 20th Century: Drawing the Line, plus refreshments sponsored by Hodder Education. Workshops will include Karin Doull on Anglo-Saxon women, the Museum of London on excavating hidden histories, Ben Walsh and Kathryn Collins on medieval migration, and Richard McFahn and Neil Bates on forgotten “ordinary” stories.
This is one CPD date for your diary not to miss! The full programme is available to download from the Historical Association website at this link.
Workshop places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. Please note that this event is non-profit making and the price rise reflects an increase in venue costs.
