Monday Lecture 18 Nov: Bernie McLean – A journey of 7000 miles in 200 years
November 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
From an early age, Bernie was aware that his paternal grandfather, whom he never met, came from a faraway place. it wasn’t until he began to investigate his family history that he discovered just how remote and hard-to-survive this place was. What is more, he found that his grandfathers’s grandparents had chosen to travel a great distance from another place that was also remote and hard-to-survive. this presentation follows a very long journey for his ancestors in the early 1800s and for himself in the 21st Century as he visited these two places. It is not just a sad story of life and death on the edge of civilisation; there is humour too and sometimes some sunshine. Come along for the ride!
