Event description

Description

Join two University of Portsmouth historians, Professor Brad Beaven and Dr Karl Bell, for a journey through some of the hidden histories of nineteenth-century Portsmouth.

This talk will explore Victorian Portsmouth, introducing you to a city of sailors and sin, superstition and supernatural tales. It will also showcase a newly developed 'sailortown' app that allows you to conduct your own investigations into sailors lives and ghostly happenings in Old Portsmouth.

This event will be followed by a wine reception sponsored by the Port Towns, Urban Cultures project (http://porttowns.port.ac.uk).
