James II: King in Exile
Wednesday 05 Apr 18.30

A dynasty topples, a foreign army marches into Whitehall and Scotland and Ireland are pitched into civil war. But did the Revolution of 1688 really change anything at all? Historians have debated its meaning to the point that the events surrounding the fall of King James II seem to be the dry stuff of constitutional history. But underneath lies a wider narrative of jealous placemen, Jacobite agents and a radical underground that was capable of forging and sustaining a new revolutionary consensus across the British Isles. Join author and activist John Callow for an evening of radical history at Bookmarks.
