Visitors will be treated to a fascinating talk discovering the evolution of dogs’ place in British society.
Throughout history man’s best friend has played an influential support role and aided our day to day lives.
From herding livestock to guiding the visually impaired, our loyal companions have stood by us, searched for us and worked with the authorities to sniff out criminal activity.
PhD student Emma is currently studying the use of dogs in the First World War and will be on hand to walk you through their important place in history.
Priced at £4, tickets can be bought from Chichester Library by calling 01243 777351, or email
