How much do we know about the place we call ‘home’? The British landscape has been continuously occupied by humans for 12,000 years, from the end of the Ice Age till the twenty first century. In this geographical journey through time, we discover the ancient relationship between people and place and the deep-rooted tensions between town and countryside. As Britain lurches from an exploitative past towards a more sustainable future, this is the story of our age.

 

Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. Our aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate. 

Many of our speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. Our lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.
