Fred Talk: Besieging a Medieval Castle
October 22, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Trebuchets! Rebellious knights! A vengeful king! Grain prices!
This 15-minute talk will examine what went into the royal siege of Bedford castle in England in 1224. Pizza will be served.
On the following two evenings, my History Department colleagues will give Fred Talks in their areas (same time, same place):
Oct. 23: Dr. Corey Campion – “Revenge on the Rio Grande”
Oct. 24: Dr. Jay Harrison – “Exhibiting History in Times of Conflict”
