March Museum Mondays session at Sewerby Hall and Gardens to talk about the Edwardian Wars that never were

Wed, 26 Feb 2020

The Museum Mondays session for March, which take place at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, will hold an Edwardian Wars-related talk on Monday, 2 March from 1.30-3pm.

Each illustrated talk or handling session will be linked to Sewerby Hall, the museum or the museum collections and is primarily aimed at adults.

This month's talk is The Edwardian Wars That Never Were, and the Countdown to 1914 and it will be held in Training Room 2 at Sewerby Hall.

Rob Chester, education officer at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, said: "The Edwardian period is often thought of as a long peaceful interlude before The Great War. In fact, it was a time full of international tensions and on several occasions, Britain narrowly avoided war.

"Ironically, each time a war was avoided it was another step taken toward The Great War, and this talk will explore the wars that never were and how they fed into the causes of The Great War of 1914-1918."

Booking is not required for the talks and visitors can go to the Welcome Centre and be directed to the talk.
