The Legacy of Abraham through Art and Tradition; speaker Canon Dr Anne Davison
Abraham, who lived around 1800BC, is considered to be the first patriarch of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All three faiths have struggled with Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son in obendience to the will of God. Through paintings, sculpture, mosaics, icaons and tapestries, Anne Davision will demonstrate how the traditions vary beween the three Abrahamic faiths.

Dulwich Books of West Dulwich in association with Alleyn's School presents international bestselling author and multi-award-winning military historian Antony Beevor who will be discussing his latest book, The Second World War, which has just been published in paperback.
The Second World War began in August 1939 on the edge of Manchuria and ended there exactly six years later with the Soviet invasion of northern China. Beevor's The Second World War focuses on the fate of the ordinary soldiers and civilians whose lives were crushed by the titanic forces unleashed in this, the most terrible war in history.

Thursday 4 December, 7-8pm
Dr Robert Storrie, our Keeper of Anthropology draws on his fieldwork in Amazonia to discuss the meanings of the three shrunken heads in the Horniman's collection. What did they mean to the Shuar People who made them, and what do they mean now to their descendents? What have they meant to museums and their visitors over the past century, and can we find a way of displaying them in the future that does justice to Amazonian understandings of the world?
Behind the Scenes: Afghanistan and Empire: stories of British imperial adventure told through the Horniman’s collection
Afghan journalist Zia Shahreyar and historian Bijan Omrani will present the Horniman’s thought-provoking collection of relics from the Anglo-Afghan Wars using them and other objects from the region to place the current conflict in its historical and cultural context.
Tickets: £5 Over-18s only.
