Dan Jackson – The Northumbrians: North-East England and Its People: A New History

19th October 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Visitor Centre (downstairs)

Tickets £6

In a new history of North East England, Dan explores the roots of Northumbrian culture – hard work, drinking, sociability, sentimentality, militarism and masculinity—in centuries of border warfare and demanding work in industry, at sea and underground. Dan Jackson has written for the New Statesmen and appeared on the BBC.
