18 December 2014
The National Archives is again hosting a series of monthly talks to broaden awareness of historical records and their uses for writers. Each month, a high-profile author will talk about using original records in their writing. Sir Ranulph Fiennes will discuss his new book, Agincourt.
Tickets cost £5 (£4 for Friends of The National Archives). Buy your ticket now.
This event was originally scheduled for 17 December but has been moved to 18 December due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
About the author
Sir Ranulph Fiennes was the first man to reach both Poles by surface travel and the first to cross the Antarctic continent unsupported. He is the only person yet to have been awarded two clasps to the Polar medal for both Antarctic and the Arctic regions. Fiennes has led over 30 expeditions including the first polar circumnavigation of the Earth, and in 2003 he ran seven marathons in seven days on seven continents in aid of the British Heart Foundation. Through his record-breaking challenges he has raised over £14 million for UK charities.
In 1993 Her Majesty the Queen awarded Fiennes the Order of the British Empire (OBE).
