A presentation telling the story of Hannibal and his epic journey across the Alps to confront the Romans in their homeland. The talk also introduces you to the debates around the history and Hannibal’s decision making.
Included with the talk is a set of handouts with in depth information about the types of soldiers which comprised the Carthaginian and Roman armies.
I am the son of the local historian and archaeologist Peter Hammond and, through my inherent love of history, I have my own series of talks that I have designed which cover a wide range of topics (with more coming in the future!). I have a particular interest and passion for the Napoleonic Wars and also anything to do with ancient history, with my first ever talk following the fascinating story of Hannibal Barca's conflict with the Romans.
Equipment needed: Digital projector and laptop, screen, table
All of my talks are delivered on modern and fancy PowerPoint presentations, accompanied usually with some display material for the audience to look at and experience at their leisure!
For each talk I typically charge a fee of £50 (I may charge more for groups of over 40 and also for travel expenses depending on the distance), and I aim for them to last around an hour. I am normally able to be very flexible with my time, so if you'd like me to give a talk either in the day or the evening then I am sure I can accommodate!
