Author and historian Greg Jenner races from the past to the present in this interactive talk celebrating his brand-new book Totally Chaotic History: Roman Britain Gets Rowdy! – co-written with Dr Emma Southon. Part of our new family event series Telling Tales.

Exploring chaotic and exciting times through history, Greg will uncover the amazing stories hidden in the things you do, say, and use every day, whilst introducing us to some darker tales from the past!

You’ll hear more about how Greg started writing books for young people, and how his work and experiences influence what he chooses to write about. You’ll also have the chance to ask Greg questions in a Q&A session.

Greg is a historian, writer, presenter, podcaster, and former Historical Consultant for CBBC’s Horrible Histories.
