Winter Warmer Online Talk: Tales from the Catacombs
Thursday 9th Dec 2021
6:30pm - 7:30pm
Join the Royal Parks in a series of 'Winter Warmer' online talks aimed at bringing a little light, community and learning to you during those long winter nights!
In this online talk, we will explore the catacombs of Brompton Cemetery. Catacombs are hugely intimate, poignant and reflective places that were only ever seen by a very limited number of people. Today, those who lie on the shelves or in loculi are as enigmatic as they are unknown.
Who were these people? Why did they choose a catacomb? What can their coffins tell us about how they lived? Following on from his video series in October, Sheldon Goodman highlights further lives from the vaults and reflects on how to interpret and research a history that is right in front of you.
Our online talks are presented via Microsoft Teams and you will need a Microsoft account in order to access them. Sign up for a new Microsoft account (or sign into your existing account) here.
