Greg Jenner Ask a Historian

Thursday 11 November 2021

Bear Pit Theatre

Why is Italy called Italy? How old is curry? Who was the richest person of all time? Author, BBC podcaster, and public historian Greg will whisk you off on an entertaining tour through the ages, revealing the best and most surprising stories, facts, and historical characters from the past. He’ll bounce through a wide range of subjects – from ancient joke books, African empires, and bizarre tales of medicinal cannibalism, to the invention of meringues, mirrors, and menstrual pads. Greg Jenner is best known for the hit BBC podcasts You’re Dead to Me and Homeschool History, his work on BBC’s multi-award winning TV series Horrible Histories, and for his books Dead Famous and A Million Years In A Day.
