UCL's Lunch Hour Lectures Go On Tour


University College London has long been one of the best places to catch an interesting talk with your midday sandwich. But that's only possible if you work nearby or have an understanding boss. On Tuesdays throughout June, though, the university's popular Lunch Hour Lectures will decamp to the City and Docklands.

On 4 June, get to the Museum of London where the ever-entertaining Joe Cain will discuss the Crystal Palace dinosaurs (most of which are not dinosaurs). On 11 June, the show moves to Museum of London Docklands, where Catherine Hall takes on the controversial subject of how Britain and Britons benefited from slavery.

On 18 June, Carole Reeves is at Museum of London to discuss how modern science is revealing new insights into historic disease outbreaks such as plague and marsh fever. Finally, on 25 June, Andrew Finn is at Museum of London Docklands to chat about community history projects in London.

All talks are free, run 1.15-1.55 pm, and you can just turn up on the day. The talks will also be webcast live, in case you insist on staying at your desk.
