The Spoils of War by Christopher Joll
Tuesday, 30 March 2021, 7pm
This talk by Christopher Joll discusses the arguments for and against the current debate around repatriation and restitution taken from his publication of the same name: SPOILS OF WAR – The Treasures, Trophies & Trivia of the British Empire.
“Christopher Joll’s original and entertaining book focuses on some of the remarkable spoils of war seized during the age of empire by British soldiers, sailors and airmen. Each of these tangible , trophies of victory, ranging from the priceless to the valueless, has a story which Joll recounts – and sometimes debunks – with style, humour and insight.”
MICHAEL PORTILLO Broadcaster and former Secretary of State for Defence
