Museum Friends only
The Time Traveller’s Book Club takes a romp through history, led by Dr Mike Smith, archaeologist and Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the National Museum.
This month’s book is Rough Crossings: Britain, the Slaves and the American Revolution, by Simon Schama, Harper-Collins, 2006.
Rough Crossings is a fascinating account of African slaves who joined the British during the American War of Independence to fight for their liberty, were evacuated to Nova Scotia and eventually repatriated to Sierra Leone.
This historical non-fiction book club meets on the last Tuesday of each month. Friends are encouraged to attend, even if they haven’t always read the book. Mike has compiled a reading list for the first 12 months and members are encouraged to make suggestions.
Cost: Friends full members free
