Spanish Flu: the global pandemic

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 8th Feb 2018

As the First World War raged across Europe, the globe was struck by another, quieter, but equally deadly affliction – influenza.
The Spanish Flu, as it was known in Britain, appeared in early 1918, and spread rapidly around the globe. Using documents from The National Archives, this event will explore the origins of Spanish Flu and how it came to affect people in every corner of the world.

Speaker Hannah Mawdsley is a PhD researcher studying the global impact of influenza in 1918-19. The talk will be followed by a document display, highlighting the depth and range of our collections in this area.

Cost: Free of Charge
