A talk by Chris Wood, Independent Researcher & Curatorial Volunteer with NMS.

The story of the young indigenous American woman, known to history as Pocahontas, is one of dislocation and tragedy. She chose to live as a bridge between people, but her life was sadly cut short at the end of her visit to England, four hundred years ago.

This talk tells her real story, including its connections with Norfolk, and looks at how her legend has been used and abused over the centuries, from American Civil War propaganda to modern blockbuster films – but at its best as a message of hope.

Talk only – £3.00 (£1.95 Norfolk Museums Pass holder)
