On 24 November 2015, Mark J. Davies will give an illustrated talk called ‘Alice in Waterland’. It will take place near Oxford, United Kingdom.
The River Thames was fundamentally important in the creation of the famous tales of ‘Alice in Wonderland’. On a Victorian virtual voyage – from the riverside picnic at nearby Godstow where the tale was first told to the last of the many boat outings he made with the real Alice (Liddell) and her sisters – some of the real people, places, and events which underlie the fantasy will be revealed.
The talk is given by local historian and author Mark J. Davies, on behalf of Wolvercote Commoners.
