Historian Sam Willis and I have just set up a new little venture, called History Masterclass. The idea behind it is our desire to offer the public an opportunity to engage with history in a way that isn’t just didactic, but is interactive. Rather than just been spoken at in a room of 100+, we have created History Masterclass so that you can spend several hours with leading historians, and have a chance to debate, discuss, and engage with them on important historical topics. We’ve got a really amazing line-up for 2017: Dan Snow, Janina Ramirez, Peter Frankopan, Kate Williams, Helen Castor, and me and Sam. My first Masterclass is on 11 February on ‘The Witch-Trials’.
