Who we are

History Group focussing this year on the Ancient Britons.

u3a Logo


This year we are to become Ancient Britons. Well not ever so ancient. We plan to start in September at the Romans in Britain. So we will join Boadicea in her struggle, and build Hadrian's Wall and all sorts.

Then we will pass on to the Dark Ages. Were they really so dark? And Saxons, and Vikings and all sorts of nasty invasions by men with strange head gear.

King Arthur (did he really exist?) and Alfred, and King Canute, will put in an appearance.

Then poor old Harold and that dastardly Norman, William the Conqueror.  It will not be all talk. There will be plenty of pictures and videos, and one or two visits during the year.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested.
