Speaker Dr Annie Tindley, is a senior Lecturer in Modern British History, at Newcastle University.
Her research interests revolve around the interrogation of the aristocratic and landed classes, landed estates and their management from the mid-eighteenth to mid-twentieth centuries, in the Scottish, Irish, British and imperial contexts. Dr. Tindley is interested in the ways in which landed elites defined and translated their power.
During the First World War, women (and men) at home knitted items for men at the front and in hospital. Today we are knitting and crocheting flowers for our community artwork hanging and items to send to charities supporting people affected by war. It doesn’t matter if you can only do a couple of rows, and experienced knitters will be on hand to help. Come and join a drop-in session between 2.15 and 3.30 in the Picture Galleries.
