We are a friendly democratic group with a relaxed and flexible view of history. We start each session with a coffee.
At the first meeting each year we decide which period in history we wish to examine in detail during the coming year. We then look at our chosen period in great detail over the ensuing months, with each member taking responsibility for a different aspect of it, political, economic, social etc. We then devote a session, or sometimes more than one session, to each of these aspects, with a group member starting the proceedings with a presentation detailing his/her research, after which there is a general discussion.
