'Conscientious Objectors' with Steve Erskine
19 Sep

Steve Erskine will be giving a presentation on conscientious objectors.

Steve Erskine is a local historian of some note. He is an assistant curator of the Green Howards Museum.

Richmond Castle was used as a prison for conscientious objectors. Owned by English Heritage the cells are on rare occasions open to the public. The cells contain graffiti on the walls from the First World War.
