A popular history professor at Queen's International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in England who brings history alive with lectures on location will be at Queen's Tuesday, Jan. 20.

Scott McLean will deliver a public lecture at Ellis Auditorium, 7 pm, and will also meet with former and perhaps future students. He will give a talk entitled "I think they are quite unbeatable: The Canadian Army in Sussex, 1939-1945." His visit is presented by the International Programs Office, Faculty of Arts and Science and ISC alumni. A reception will follow at the Grad Club, 162 Barrie St.

Dr. McLean has taught at the castle for 10 years and leads field study trips to popular destinations including the Vimy Ridge Memorial. He has lectured 140 meters underground in a deep and dark Yorkshire coal mine, standing atop Hadrian's Wall, painting a picture of what Roman life was like 2000 years ago, and explaining WWII strategy on the beaches of Dieppe. He's had his students to storm the beach in  their Nikes and backpacks to show how difficult it is to do
