Unlocking the history of the unexpected

histories-of-the-unexpectedA major new series of podcasts that aim to unlock history has recently been launched. Created by James Daybell, Professor of Early Modern History, and Honorary Research Fellow Dr Sam Willis, Histories of the Unexpected demonstrates that anything can have a fascinating history and that everything links together in unexpected ways.  Topics up for discussion during the series include the orange, zombies, gloves, paperclips, dragons, graffiti, and blood. The podcasts are available to download on the History Hit Podcast network, which is home to the hugely successful Dan Snow’s History Hit, regularly the number one history podcast on iTunes in the UK. Further information can be found on the Plymouth University website.
