The first Sport in History Podcast brought to you by the British Society of Sport History in association with the Institute of Historical Research includes a paper by Lydia Furse of De Montfort University.
Lydia talked to us about the controversial history of the 1994 Women’s Rugby Union World Cup which was organised in a hurry due to efforts by the International Rugby Board to stop the event going ahead.
Geoff and Dr Raf Nicholson also discuss upcoming podcasts that will feature Lisa Taylor speaking about women’s rowing in the 1960s and Jeremy Lonsdale, who will be exploring the early history of Yorkshire cricket.
Tune in for a lively discussion and a Q&A between Lydia and the seminar audience!
