History at its Heart: Lincoln Book Festival

The Lincoln Book Festival has History at its heart. Why? The reasons are simple.

Lincoln is a place where history seeps out from every stone. From Roman remains, through the Norman Castle and Gothic Cathedral to the Georgian Minster Yard but then into serious nineteenth century engineering buildings but continuing through the twentieth century with Tritton Road where the tank was invented and onwards to the present day.

History is populated with stories: some delight, some appall, all inform. An understanding of history enables us better to handle the issues of today.

Each year the trustees choose themes for each day of the Festival that may resonate with contemporary issues, that may reflect an anniversary or simply that choose themselves.

To find out more about the history of Lincoln, visit the Visit Lincoln website. Lincoln Record Society and the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology are also good sources of information.
