York: A Walk on the Wild Side – this Saturday

Join us for a walk led by Paul Furness which will tell histories of York rarely heard about – a city of protest and repression…. and a city to have a good time!

The aim of the walk is to use alternative histories of York to open up debates and discussions around the York: Living with History research questions.

A walk might seem like an unusual method for an inquiry – but our aim is to explore alternative pasts as a way of opening up debate about York’s alternative futures…(whether around planning decisions, the tourist economy or how to enrich understandings of York’s history in schools and for visitors).

 

For a taster see Paul’s earlier articles based on a walk he did for York’s Alternative History in summer 2012:
