450 years of Russo-British Relations
Prof. Paul Dukes, University of Aberdeen

It is exactly 450 years since Richard Chancellor, more or less accidentally, visited the Russia of Ivan the Terrible ? and drowned off the Fife coast on his return three years later. Paul Dukes, Emeritus Professor of History at Aberdeen University and author of a number of books on Russian history, will trace the development of Russo-British relations since that time.
The talk is open to members and non-members. We hope you will join us for a glass of wine (or soft drink) at the end.
