At the inaugural meeting in July 2010  the group decided to approach the subject of History from the point of view of ‘World History Over the Ages’ rather than start, say, at the Bronze Age and progress to present day.

It was felt that this way we can look at various aspects without being tied to a particular period.

The subject for research is suggested by and agreed upon by the group as a whole about two months in advance.

All members are encouraged to take part in individual research so that everyone in the group will have the opportunity to take an active part in the discussion of the subjects chosen.

We have borrowed some DVDs from the Resource Centre but usually we undertake our own research.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at Bracknell Methodist Church, commencing at 10.15 for approximately two hours.
