    The French Revolution is the first of the world’s successful revolts to go horribly wrong. What started as a noble exercise in defining the rights of man devolved into a murderous series of riots, slaughters, and bloodlettings. What started as a simple bankruptcy proceeding lapsed into a lawyer-controlled mess where it was cheaper to buy a newspaper than it was to buy a loaf of bread. It would awake the dark heart in politicians the world over who would end up leading their states down the same path. Please register for this class if you are interested in participating via Zoom only.  You must have access to a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.

    One of the great myths of World War I is that the war was unavoidable. This is far from the truth. Even the participants at the time were well aware of the actions they could have taken to prevent the war from breaking out but simply didn’t. The July Crisis of 1914 clearly demonstrated to everyone that the old system of diplomacy between related sovereign rulers was finished. And the network carefully created by Queen Victoria and Otto von Bismarck was collapsing. Defeated by both technology and nationalism. Here’s how it happened.  Please register for this class if you are interested in participating via Zoom only.  You must have access to a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.

    King of the Britons and central figure of the Arthurian legends comes to life in Geoffrey’s of Monmouth’s Historia Regum Britanniae. Long considered to be nothing but a story, Arthur’s name appears in several lists for the 7th to the 10th Century… lists which only include known historical figures. Why would respected historians include a fictional character in their historical works… unless, of course, he wasn’t as fictional as we think he is. Class is given via Zoom.  You must have a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.
