Evening Talk: Touring Battlefields of the World Wars

Join Geoff Bird to explore the experience and meaning associated with visiting 20th century battlefields and war memorials such as Vimy Ridge, Ypres, the Somme and Normandy. Delve into the significance of remembrance, examining how sites of memory are established with memorials and the preservation of landscapes and relics of war. Gain insight into the importance of war heritage in the 21st century and learn the power of individual experiences of touring sites and “standing in the footsteps” of those who fought.
