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 ancient history, with my first ever talk following the fascinating story of Hannibal Barca's conflict with the Romans. I also have a First Class Honours degree in History from Nottingham Trent University.
Equipment needed: Digital projector, screen, table
All of my talks are illustrated and delivered on 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!
