Gill Jilks, afternoon speaker Monday 8 July 2013.Monday 8 July, Gill and Pete Jilks joined us to share the story of a cruise they took part in earlier this year, following in the footsteps of early traders from Netherlands, around the north east of Africa and then across to South America and up the River Amazon.

Gill gave a history rich talk, mentioning explorers from history including Columbus, and well known modern explorers like Michael Palin too.

A thoroughly interesting talk, full of exotic tales. Thanks to both Gill and Pete for arranging this talk for us.
