This week Jo is time travelling on the show – back to AD79 when Vesuvius erupted as she’s chatting to historian Daisy Dunn about it the Gloucester History Festival. We’ll also be in Medieval Tewkesbury hearing about an item that barber surgeons would use to advertise their services that still exists today.

Plus Jo finds out how significant Warren James was in the 19th century Forest of Dean and how he ended up in Tasmania. And Jo’s Festival Flashback takes us to the 2018 Cheltenham Science Festival and her chat with Patricia Fara on the role women played in science and medicine in the First World War.
