A House Through Time: a ThinkIn with David Olusoga & Melanie Backe-Hansen

Hidden in the walls of homes across the country are secrets which reveal more than we might think about who we are, and who we have been.

Historians David Olusoga and Melanie Backe-Hansen from the TV series and recent book A House Through Time join us for a ThinkIn in which we explore the history that is all around us, every day. In exploring the history of our houses, we uncover the forces of industry, disease, mass transportation, crime and class that shaped, through the lives of our ancestors, the cities, towns and villages where we all live today.
