The turn out for yesterday’s talk was amazing, standing room only, the best indoor event so far. Professor Colin Richards of Manchester University, gave an excellent and thorough decription and explanation of Thor Heyerdahl’s famous 1955 expedition to Easter Island. The audience went through stages of admiration for Thor but then the opposite – even deep loathing. Such was his personality. A great talk and great evening.
Just off now to buy Heyerdahl’s books!
