Medieval History: Weather or Not Full with Waitlist*
The people of Medieval England had limited resources to deal with the change, threat and devastation brought about by severe weather. This series of lectures will look at several occasions when the weather had an impact, limited or widespread, on the lives of everyday men and women. Leaders, then as now, found that the one element over which they had no control was the weather - yet this was a factor that could change history. Examples of weather interference will include the Norman Invasion of England, the London Tornado, the Great Famine, and the Battle of Agincourt. Please note that perhaps inappropriately, a somewhat lighthearted approach will be taken to this subject.
The facilitator Dr. Alana Gowdy has an interest in history based on stories and excitement, rather than dates and doggerel. Her teaching experience ranges from elementary to university and includes many merry hours spent with lifelong learners. Please note that while providing serious information, Alana does not take her subject matter too seriously.
