Friends of Malton Museum lecture on Wednesday 18th January 2017 at 7.30 pm in the Library, East Wing, Malton School, Middlecave Road, Malton.
Dr Rose Drew will talk on “Women at War”. Admission is free to Friends, others are welcome at a charge of £3. The Friends say:-
“Join anthropologist Dr Rose Drew as she recounts tales of women who passed as boys in earlier centuries in order to go to war. These females fought alongside other (usually unsuspecting) male soldiers. But what would make a woman join a war? They often had the same reasons as boys and men who run off to become soldiers, with the added bonus of missing out on the dangerous or just plain regimented lives of women in the past.”
