The Elgees and North York Moors Video Talk


Staff member
If you enjoy history, folklore, archaeology, geology and/or North York Moors this short talk by Dr Martyn Hudson should be of interest. Martyn talks about Frank and Harriet Elgee and their relationship to the North York Moors.
Originally planned as a lecture in Dorman Museum this has now gone virtual with Martyn recording this video for us.
Frank Elgee was an archaeologist, geologist and naturalist and early 20th century curator of Dorman Museum, Harriet carried on his work but was also closely involved throughout.
Martyn shares their passion for the North York Moors.
Dr Martyn Hudson has a new book out about this subject, On Blackamoor: History, Nature, Memory. #LocalHistoryMonth
