If you have a question about this talk, please contact Sally March.

Professor Davies will talk about places he visited and the history he found there, from Abu Dhabi to Singapore, the settlement of Tasmania to the short-lived Republic of Texas. He has always been interested in understanding how places became as they are, and how peoples came to tell themselves the stories which make up their identities. Since the beginning of time humans have travelled, either settling empty lands or pushing out people who were already there. To whom is a land truly native?

Professor Davies will also be launching his new book, Beneath Another Sky: A Global Journey Into History, at this event.
