On the 200th anniversary of the birth of Friedrich Engels, his biographer Tristram Hunt looks at how both Engels and Karl Marx were deeply affected by their time in London in the second half of the 19th century.
London, then the heart of the British Empire, transformed the thinking of these two revolutionary philosophers on finance, on working people’s lives, on cities, and on women voting.
Hunt will look at the remarkable personal and family lives of the ‘The Old Londoners’ as they became known, in their North London homes at Primrose Hill and Chalk Farm.
