Beginning in the Stone Age, this exciting, fast-paced talk reveals the hundred most important and influential IDEAS, in the history of warfare. Of course many of these brainwaves, innovations and inventions were military in nature – for example the chariot and the crossbow – but many others were not: how about the lever escapement, or the stirrup? With only a minute or so to spare for each idea on the list, the pace is swift! The two parts of this talk follow in sequence, with Part One dealing with Ideas 1-50, and Part Two dealing with Ideas 51-100 (55 mins + 55 mins)

About Tim Barney

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by military history and technology, and like any enthusiast, I’ve always wanted to share my passion with the people around me. Following a career in the IT industry, I now have the opportunity to pass on some of the amazing facts and stories I’ve come upon over the years. As you will discover when you book one of my talks, military history is definitely NOT just for military history fans!

My talks are designed to appeal to men and women from every walk of life. A little technical jargon is sometimes unavoidable, but don’t worry, I always translate this into everyday language!

The talks fall into two categories: stand-alone single part talks, and two part talks: these consist of two sections which can be booked individually, or together as a single longer talk. See under individual talks below for timings. If you are interested in a particular talk, but require more information, or would like to discuss other options to suit your requirements, then please do contact me.

All the talks are illustrated with PowerPoint slides. I have my own projector, table and screen, but I’ll happily use your equipment if it’s already in place. If a face-to-face meeting is not possible for some reason, I can deliver all my talks online, using Zoom or any other preferred platform. I am always keen to take questions afterwards.
