Now the author of best-selling book Vanished Kingdoms. Beneath another Sky – he will give a talk at St Peter’s Church, Broad Street, on Thursday December 7.

The book is his account of the places he visited on his circumnavigation of the globe and the history he found there, from Abu Dhabi to Singapore, the settlement of Tasmania to the short-lived Republic of Texas.

“Professor Davies sees behind the present to see how people came to tell themselves the stories which make up their identities” say hosts Topping Booksellers.

“Join us to hear him discuss the ever relevant topics of migration and national identity.”

Doors open at 7.10pm for a 7.30pm start.
