A BAFTA-winning history broadcaster and best-selling author is all set to speak about making history accessible online.

Dan Snow will speak as part of Lancaster University’s Public Lecture Series on Tuesday, 28th February, at Lancaster Town Hall, from 6pm to 8pm.

Dan, an honorary graduate of Lancaster University, has livestreamed on Tik Tok while searching for Shackleton's ship Endurance, posted on Instagram from World War 1 biplanes and recorded podcasts from inside the Arctic and Antarctic circles.

In this free and open to all lecture, Dan will explore some of the strengths and weaknesses of all the digital tools now available, and the opportunities and dangers that this revolution in broadcasting brings.

Reserve your place at the public lecture here.

This will be an in-person only event. For those unable to attend, the lecture will be recorded and made available at a later date on the Lancaster University Public Lecture Series webpage.

The lecture series is just one of the ways in which the University connects with communities, sharing research and its relevance to everyday lives.

The event is organised in conjunction with Lancaster University's History Department and features in the Regional Heritage Centre's 50th anniversary programme. More information on the RHC can be found here.
