history society: october update - news 3a - History Society: October Update

The History Society held its second meeting of the term on similar lines to the first, but with fuller involvement of Year 12 this time. We were treated to a series of presentations ranging from the fifteenth century to the twentieth.

Poppy Gaisford St Lawrence spoke impressively on the influence of some leading English women in the fifteenth century, while Rhys Pearson-Shaul argued somewhat controversially that Edward IV’s marriage to Elizabeth Woodville was disastrous for the Yorkist dynasty. We then segued to the late nineteenth century, with Freddie Green speaking confidently about Bismarck as a power-broker and manipulator, while Phoebe Reynolds reported her initial estimation of Nicholas II as part of her wider study of the fall of the Romanovs.

We look forward to the Classical Civilization Department, doomed though it seems in exam terms, delivering on the eternal subject of Herodotus, Father of History or Father of Lies?
