Napoleonic Flatulence and ABBA Bing‪o

This week we’re joined by BBC New Generation Thinker Dr Emma Butcher! Emma is a gravy-guzzling military historian, who works on children and war. She is an expert in the juvenilia of the Brontë siblings and her recent monograph, ‘The Brontës and War’, was published earlier this year. She’s a wannabe Emily, but identifies as a Charlotte, and she’s here to tell us whether or not ABBA were on to something when they stated ‘the history book on the shelf is always repeating itself’ (Andersson and Ulvaeus: 1974).

You can find Emma on Twitter @EmmaButcher_ and you can donate to the Brontë Parsonage Museum Appeal here.
