A day in the life of a Yorkshire miner, Dave Hogg.
A talk which will go through the typical working day of a coal miner in the modern era, explaining the workings of a modern coal mine and the techniques used.
Our speaker, a former underground worker at Sharlston Colliery, will also offer his account of the far-reaching 1984-85 strike.
Start time 11.00 am.

Lectures will be live wherever possible but in a hybrid format - so if you cannot, or would prefer not to, join live, we will still be holding the meetings online as well - details will follow nearer the date.

The live venue is expected to be Swarthmore College, 2-7 Woodhouse Square, Woodhouse, Leeds, LS3 1AD.
