During the reign of Queen Victoria, seven different men attacked her in public. Some fired pistols, another clubbed her with a stick, and all of them failed to kill her. But what happened next? How did Victorian society respond to these would-be assassins? Join Dr Bob Nicholson, presenter of the BBC documentary series Killing Victoria, to investigate the first of these sensational attacks and the remarkable events that followed. You’ll explore Victorian newspaper reports, trial transcripts, and even the Queen’s private diaries to reveal the history of an event that nearly brought the Victorian Era to a premature end. This session will give you a taster of what it’s like to take part in a history lecture and seminar.
