Richard Morris: Writing Yorkshire.
Richard Morris’s widely acclaimed book Yorkshire brings the making of Yorkshire alive, from Viking trading routes to Wakes Week to the Cold War, weaving together stories of real people and families with travelogue and ecology. He looks at Yorkshire through the eyes of artists and writers like J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Girtin, Winifred Holtby and J.B. Priestley and embraces myth and legend, conflict and faith, scientific advancement, boom and bust.
In this talk Richard will describe how the book was written, how he took decisions on what went in or what was left out, and things he has discovered since Yorkshire was published.
Richard Morris is Emeritus Professor of Archaeology at the University of Huddersfield and former Director of the Council for British Archaeology.
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. (TS Eliot)......Until next season. (HB Lit&Sci)
