Join the Department of History to hear best-selling historian Charles Spencer, the 9th Earl Spencer, tell the shocking stories and fascinating fates of the men who signed Charles I’s death warrant.
His new book Killers of the King: The Men who Dared Execute Charles I details a powerful tale of revenge, pursuit and resistance from the dark heart of our royal past. Acclaimed for its deep archival research and pacy, riveting style, this is a great opportunity to hear Charles speak about this fascinating and brutal period of English history. A book signing will take place after the lecture.
Admission free, all welcome. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and putting Earl Spencer lecture in the subject line.
