How can we better understand our history through our country houses and estates? How do we make these places of tradition and inheritance relevant and ensure we’re getting a true view of their role in the formation of our society? And how do we do so without descending into disagreement? Four history experts – historians Suzannah Lipscomb (What Is History, Now?) and Alice Loxton (UPROAR! Satire, Scandal and Printmakers in Georgian London), presenter and film-maker David Olusoga (Black and British: A Forgotten History) and writer Sathnam Sanghera (Empireland: How Imperialism Has Shaped Modern Britain) – speak to René Olivieri, chair of the National Trust, about how we engage with the many layered stories of country houses, and why as Britain changes we need to broaden our perspectives.
