Histories of the Unexpected
Two excellent talks about themes in their book Histories of the Unexpected by authors Sam Willis & James Daybell opened the Whitgift School Heritage Festival on 26 June, The talk is related to this book:
In the book they take readers on a journey of historical discovery that tackles some of the greatest historical themes – from the Tudors to the Second World War, from the Roman Empire to the Victorians – but via entirely unexpected subjects. In its pages you will find out how the history of the beard is connected to the Crimean War; how the history of paperclips is all about the Stasi; how the history of cats is all about the French Revolution. And who knew that Heinrich Himmler, Tutankhamun and the history of needlework are linked to napalm and Victorian orphans?”
