Jeevika Lecture 2016 – India and China : Modern Travels in Ancient Civilisations

Join us for our Jeevika Lecture 2016 taking place on Thursday 24th November 2016 at the Royal Geographical Society, Kensington Gore.

Presented by the popular broadcaster and historian Michael Wood, whose track record for bringing alive the past has made him a household name, particularly in his epic series for BBC telling ‘The Story of India’ (2007) and ‘The Story of China’ (2016). For this illustrated lecture Michael will be drawing on his research and travels, and his passion for history, to explore characteristics of and contrasts between the world’s oldest surviving civilisation and the oldest surviving state.

Doors open at 6:30pm and close at 9:30pm. The lecture starts at 7:00pm and will be followed by an opportunity for questions, finishing at 8:00pm.

Before and after the lecture there will be a cash bar and, as at previous Jeevika Lectures, an Indian Bazaar, organised by Serena Fass, offering a wide range of high quality Indian jewellery, artefacts, clothes and books.

Tickets cost £20 each (plus booking fee). For more information on the event and to purchase tickets please visit our event-booking page by clicking the button below.
