This group looks ‘Sideways’ at History.   We choose a particular period and examine what was happening at that period world-wide. In 2018/2019 we will look at the period of 1800-1850 CE which will give us the possibility of studying the Chartists in Britain, the conquests of Shaku Zulu in South Africa, the first Opium War in China, the opening up of the American West, the impact of the arrival of the railway around the world ……and much else beside.  Although none of us are experts, we do expect all group members to participate in discussions and researching/presenting topics of their choice.  Michael Johns will lead the grou;.  Email preferred for more information
