About the event

Modern, thriving and quirky, the bustling 21st century Chester we see today has been built around history. The city’s ancient cathedral, medieval walls, Roman amphitheatre and gardens, and the 13th century Rows, all keep us in touch with Chester’s compelling and important past.

When experts from the Department of History and Archaeology at the University of Chester researched the city, a series of documentary films resulted. 

Watch these films here and then join the historians, archaeologists and film-maker `in conversation.` Please BOOK HERE

In the Department of History and Archaeology, the study of the past ranges over nearly two thousand years, from the fall of Rome to Cold War America. Members of the Department are experts on a wide range of topics and periods, covering the Vikings, the Crusades, the Consumer Revolution, the English Civil War, the Holocaust, Genocide, and minorities and migration in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is a truly global mix of specialisms.
