Year 13 Crusades' Lecture at Rossall
Thursday, 15 March 2012
A group of Year Thirteen History students travelled to Rossall School to attend a lecture on the reasons for the success of the First Crusade, delivered by Professor Jonathan Phillips of Royal Holloway, University of London.
The event, which was the second in a series of link-ups between Bolton School and Rossall, dealt with some of the key issues encountered by the boys during their coursework studies, such as the various motivations of those involved and the key turning points in the venture. The lecture concluded with a questions and answers session with the visiting Professor, during which those present had the opportunity to quiz him more directly on the salient points of their own coursework enquiries.
The next event in the programme will be hosted by Bolton School and will take place following the summer break.
