Talk with David Weinczok

The Castle Hunter

“The Scottish History Behind Game of Thrones”

A wall in the distant north cuts the world in two. Ruthless seaborne warriors raid the coasts from their war galleys, yearning to regain lost glories. A young nobleman and his kin are slaughtered under a banner of truce within a mighty castle. A warrior king becomes a legend when he smites his foe with one swing of his axe during a nation-forging battle. Yet this isn’t Westeros – it’s Scotland.

Join author and presenter David C. Weinczok for a talk drawn from his book, ‘The History Behind Game of Thrones: The North Remembers’ and discover the characters, battles, landscapes, and lore from Scotland’s story that wove their way into George R. R. Martin’s world of ice and fire.

This is a free event, no need to book.
