HistoryWhat historical event has captured your imagination? The significance of an event cannot be measured scientifically. Every historian, journalist or student could make
their own lists. This course is meant to draw attention to a number of events in history that left an indelible mark on peoples lives and an indisputable memory in the
minds of later generations. Pick something that interests you, and would interest the group and tell us about it. It can be an event over years or a point in time – a big
event or something small but significant. Any time period is fair game.
