Celebrating History with Ian Ross and Lauren Johnson: May We Live in Interesting Times

Thursday 23rd June 2016 6:30pm - 8pm Cabot Circus, Bristol Literary Event, Free Event

Join us for an evening of history with historians and writers, Ian Ross and Lauren Johnson.


Ian Ross is the author of the Twilight of Empire series, a sequence of historical novels set in the early 4th century AD, the era of the Roman emperor Constantine. His first novel, War at the Edge of the World, was published in the UK by Head of Zeus in January 2015. The third installment, Battle for Rome, was published in January 2016 to great acclaim. Ian has been researching and writing about the later Roman world and its army for over a decade. He spent a year in Italy, teaching English, but now lives in Bath.


Lauren Johnson is a historian and costumed interpreter with a first-class degree from Oxford University. Her first novel, The Arrow of Sherwood, appeared in August 2013. Her second book, So Great a Prince, offered a fascinating glimpse of everyday life in 1509 and was published in March 2016 by Head of Zeus.

Ian will be discussing how he creates the drama of the ancient world in fiction, and Lauren will be focussing on the daily life under Henry VIII’s rule.


After their short introductions there will be the chance to meet and mingle with these talented authors to discuss history, writing and the creative process of writing historical narratives.

We will be serving wine and nibbles and both Battle for Rome and So Great a Prince will be available for the discounted bundle price of £30 at the event.
