Thank you to all who joined the New History Lab on Friday for an afternoon filled with cake, talking, and general frivolity. It was great to see such a large turnout for what was a very informative session, and we hope to see you all for the next meeting on the 22nd October. If you were unable to make this first session, have no fear! For your aural pleasure, we have uploaded the event to the blog.
