99 Objects - Papal Condescension & Bältespännarna
This blog continues in the “Europe & the U.S. in 99 Objects” series. Dr. Gabriella de la Rosa at the National Trust has started this project for the National Trust, originally published here, by delving into the Trust’s collections – nearly 1 million objects held at over 200 historic properties across the United Kingdom – to find objects with interesting, unusual and unexpected connections to Europe. These objects and their stories are being published in the form of a digital diary on the National Trust Collections website.

Churchill’s Legacy – Why It Still Matters
On the night of the first US presidential debate, when the world listened to speeches intended to influence, inspire —and even annoy — Churchill’s Legacy: Two Speeches to Save the World was launched, celebrating one of the world’s greatest orators and the 70th anniversary of two of his most influential speeches: Churchill’s Iron Curtain and United States of Europe speeches. When talks of this publication first began in 2015, however, no one could have quite foreseen its relevance to the unfolding global political landscape of 2016.
