Tuesday, 7 May 2019, 7.30 p.m. Knaresborough Historical Society has invited me to give a talk on Eugene Aram at King James's School. Aram was a schoolteacher and linguistic scholar acclaimed for his insistence that Celtic was an important foundation of the English language. He was tried and hanged in York in 1759 for the murder of Daniel Clark, a young Knaresborough shoemaker.
Thursday, 15 August 2019, 7 p.m. During Knaresborough's Festival Week I will be again talking about Mr Aram at the Library.
