Literary Hauntings: A Walking Tour of Lancaster & Its Dark Past

This tour will take visitors on a journey through Lancaster’s hidden history of Black Presence and the literature that recalls it. Our journey spans the period from the early seventeenth to the mid nineteenth century, from black servants through black actors to a famous and celebrated Victorian novelist. It will also include a visit of the Lancaster memorial to the victims of the slave trade.

This tour is led by IBAR co-director Prof Alan Rice and IBAR researcher Dr Theresa Saxon.
