History with Adrian Green

Our KS5 Historians were treated to a talk by Dr Adrian Green who is the Associate Professor for Early Modern British and American History. He talked to them about the connection between the two most famous Stuart kings (Charles and his son James) and the North East. They were given expert breakdowns of the strategic importance of Sunderland in the English Civil War as well as learning that Charles was kept prisoner where Eldon Square now stands in Newcastle.

The students were fantastically focused and even answered university level questions that were directed towards them!
