Norman Davies was for many years Professor of History at The University of London, and the author of best-selling Vanished Kingdoms. Beneath another Sky is his account of the places he visited on his circumnavigation of the globe and the history he found there, from Abu Dhabi to Singapore, the settlement of Tasmania to the short-lived Republic of Texas; Professor Davies sees behind the present to see how  people came to tell themselves the stories which make up their identities. Join us to hear him discuss the ever relevant topics of migration and national identity.
