Our first meeting of 2018 will be held on Sunday, January 21st at 2:30pm in the Undercroft of St. James' Episcopal Church, Potomac, MD.
Our speaker will be author, David K. Mullaly who has studied Viking history for many years. He will bring a collection of artifacts for our close inspection (you will have the chance to handle a real Viking sword!) and will talk about his new novel about the Viking invasion/colonization of England, Eadric and the Wolves: A Novel of the Danish Conquest of England. His presentation, "An Afternoon with the Vikings" will discuss what we have learned about nordic life in the early middle ages and the challenges of turning history into "historical-fiction." He will have copies of this work of historical fiction for purchase ($5).
The cultural presentation will be followed by our Drott Lodge business meeting, which will include a review of our fall fundraising initiatives from November and December. All members are welcome to participate and offer their input as we constantly strive to improve our events.
