Learn more about how the small Kingdom of Wessex, England’s last stronghold against the Vikings, fashioned a nation that endures to this day at ‘An Evening with Tom Holland’.
One of the UK’s leading historians, Tom Holland will enlighten you in his talk ‘Athelstan, The Making of England’, the subject of his latest book published in 2016.
Tom Holland is also a well-known author, TV presenter of Radio 4’s ‘Making History’ and producer of the 2012 documentary ‘Islam: The Untold Story’. Described as the leading writer on the ancient world, his most recent books ‘Athelstan: The Making of England’ and ‘Dynasty – the rise and fall of the House of Caesar’ were both highly critically acclaimed.
Copies of these and some of this and other books will be available to buy at the talk.
