SURPRISE!

Thursday, June 15th, 2023

In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, Professor James Daybell and Dr Sam Willis hide behind the hedge of the past and jump out with the UNEXPECTED history of SURPRISES! Which is all about the history of Jack-in-the-Boxes, the remarkable finds uncovered by the archaeological excavations of Britain’s stone age culture at Orkney’s Ness of Brodgar, the Schifferstadt gold hat, and ambushes and surprise attacks (including the Trojan Horse). It is also all about unexpected political victories and surprise election votes, ghosts and booing out! Who knew!
