MicroHistory 4: Keys

Wednesday, January 13th, 2021

This is fourth episode in our new micro history series – where we take an historic subject and try to demonstrate how it has a history in just 15-20 minutes!! And without just talking at supersonic speed. Think of it as the historicaI equivalent of speed chess or speed dating. In this third foray into historical brevity the histories of the unexpected duo of James Daybell and Sam Willis tackle the intriguing subject of KEYS, which is inspired by their book on the VIKINGS. Taking that as their starting place, the boys tackle topics of Viking power, control, access, the Viking housewife, treasure, weapons and symbolic female power before tackling the subjects of Exeter Cathedral, the Exeter Book and the keys of St Peter, as well as latchkey children and WWII! Who knew?
