Call in to speak with the host
Matthew Ward is a Historian, an Edutainer and runs History Needs You.
From appearing in three series of the extremely successful television show Horrible Histories and feature film The Da Vinci Code, to commemorating historical events live on BBC Radio, and edutaining people of all ages in schools, colleges, museums and historic properties, Matthew is an educator and performer of rare talent and versatility.
Although Matthew has frequently appeared 'in character', dressed and equipped as a person from history, his growing reputation as a radio expert, lecturer and public speaker means he is more usually to be found in modern clothing 'as himself'.
In light of recent events and the discovery of Richard III’s remains under a car park in Leicester, England, todays show is all about Missing Monarchs. We will recap on Richard III, chat about the Princes in the Tower and look at other Missing Monarchs such as Henry 2, Harold Godwinson and William the Conqueror. This show will be live and Matthew will be at the ready to answer any questions the chat room may throw at him. If time permits we may be able to find time to throw a few more into the mix.
So have your shovels at the ready and let’s go looking for Missing Monarchs!!!
It's good to talk.
