History: Whatever did we used to do for fun? Popular entertainment in the 16th and 17th century

This short course will introduce students to past concepts and perceptions of fun. What did people eat and drink for pleasure, what sports and games were played when people had spare time, and how was both the playing and listening of music enjoyed in sixteenth and seventeen century England? Through examining some primary sources, such as recipe books, maybe even playing a game or two, and reading and listening to ballads, by the end of the two weeks, students will have gained insight into aspects of past concepts of fun and note both the similarities and differences to how ‘fun’ is thought of today.

If you are a beginner sewer and would like to get started with some small, easy projects, come and join this new course. No previous experience of the sewing machine is necessary. We will start with getting used to the machine and making a simple pin cushion. This will also make us think about what fabric we can recycle and how to use up all the little scraps of fabric you may have and are not sure what to do with.

History: Amazons across the ages

This course looks at women warriors and military commanders in history, from the original Amazons to the present day. It’s often been an emotive subject, one way or the other, with the facts obscured by the prejudices of the writers, and what they wanted to be true. We will try to find the facts behind all this, while also examining how the concept was used in propaganda and mythology. Specific periods to examine will include the original Amazons (Skythian horse nomads), the Vikings, the medieval period, the American Civil War, and WW2. Apart from serious literature and archaeology, we will also look at what can be learnt from historical re-enactment (and how it can be misleading!), and how the whole concept has been used in fantasy and historical fiction, and in gaming.
