General Ludd Embraces New Technology!

Those readers who followed our events in January to commemorate the execution of 17 Luddites at York Castle 200 years before, will remember Alan Brooke. He was one of our speakers during the afternoon discussion at the Guildhall and, dressed dapperly in early 19th century dress, added a splash of colour to our commemorative event at the Castle, along with his comrades. If you are alert to the mass media, you may have heard him eloquently represent the Luddite cause on Radio 4 (Looking for the Luddites) and on BBC TV (Nick Crane’s programme on Huddersfield in his Town series).

Now you can find more of his quietly authoritative words on the blogosphere. Check him out on ‘Underground Histories’ at http://undergroundhistories.wordpress.com – it’s well worth the visit.
