Tortoise Lates: History
This evening will bring together well-known historians, best-selling authors, Tortoise editors and a bona fide national treasure to explore history in a new way.
We’ll hear untold stories and share experiences that will challenge what we think we know about our past, and maybe even change the way we look at the world today.
How do the lies we tell ourselves about our past shape the way we live today? British identity is shaped by our history – but how partial is that history? How much of it just…. False? How does the process of collective misremembering start, and how can historians help keep us honest?
