James Daybell & Sam Willis – Histories of the Unexpected
March 12, 2019
From the Tudors to the Second World War, from the Roman Empire to the Victorians – but via entirely unexpected subjects.
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 bubbles 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?
