Video of launch of Travellers in the Great Steppe


Dr Steve Brown, H E Erlan Idrissov and myself at the launch

I am delighted to report that yesterday’s launch of my new book, Travellers in the Great Steppe: from the Papal Envoys to the Russian Revolution, went off yesterday at the RGS without a hitch. The virtual audience heard from RGS director Professor Joe Smith, from His Excellency Erlan Idrissov, Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, and from Dr Steve Brown, great-great-great grandson of explorers Thomas and Lucy Atkinson, before the presentation. Don’t worry if you missed it, because there is a link to the video of the event , which you will find here. You will need to use the access code *udEv2jV. I will try to find a way to create a permanent link, but you should be able to download the files to your own computer – note that this is a very large file. Please let me know if you have any questions about the video, or, more generally about the book itself. Many thanks to all of you who were able to tune in and watch the event. Another book coming later this year….
