Colourful Signs of Power and Status – Heraldry in Past and Present

5:45pm to 6:45pm, Gala Theatre, Durham, Marcus Meer

The buildings and paintings of Durham’s cathedral and colleges are home to countless coats of arms, evoking the kings, princes, knights and noblemen of the past. But heraldry is still very much alive today. This lecture offers an overview of the study of heraldry, from its peculiar terminology and long history to its many practical applications throughout the centuries.

Britain’s Secret Red Purge

5:45pm to 6:45pm, Gala Theatre, Durham, Dr Jennifer Luff

Between the early 1920s and the late 1940s, the British government operated a large programme to identify, blacklist and dismiss suspected Communists working in HMG’s munitions factories, shipyards and scientific establishments. It was kept secret from British workers and the British public; it has remained so until now. This lecture tells the story and reflects on its implications for modern British history and contemporary politics.
