Nomads.jpgAnthony Sattin - Nomads

In conversation with William Dalrymple

Saturday 24th September, 3.30-4.30pm

Robert Graves Tent


The history of civilisation can be told through its outsiders. Why have nomads always existed? How have they altered the past? What is their future?

Acclaimed travel writer and broadcaster Anthony Sattin comes to BookFest to tell the ground-breaking story of Nomadic peoples on the move across history. Reconnecting with our deepest mythology, our unrecorded antiquity and our natural environment, join us for the untold story of civilisation, told through its outsiders.

‘...a sweeping panorama of nomadism that resonates through the past and echoes poignantly even in the present.’ Colin Thubron

'Get into BookFest' tickets available at £10 for 19s and under.

This event is sponsored by Baillie Gifford.
