This course focuses on women who took unusual paths. These include famous soldiers (Boudicca, Joan of Arc) through to those less known such as Lady Mary Banks defender of Corfe Castle; World War II pilots and Special Operations Executives. Women at sea will include pirates Anne Bonney and Grace Molloy (“bold in their breeches”), recent round the world sailors and even a Venetian gondolier! Our study of queens will range across time and place including Cleopatra, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Dowager Empress Cixi in China.
