Wade Davis – The Great War



2014, Cultural Studies
Presented By: Wade Davis

Joining us for his fourth ideacity talk, National Geographic Explorer in Residence Wade Davis came in 2014 to give a talk of a different nature. While normally he focuses on lost Amazons, long forgotten cities and other far reaches of the world, this talk he dove back into Britain’s past and the original expedition to Mount Everest. Make sure not to miss this talk where Wade breaks down the historic climb to conquer the worlds largest mountain and why the 26 explorers were dramatically changed by The Great War.
