In 1982, Robert Wardhaugh sat down to play a game of Dungeons & Dragons. Thirty-five years later, that same game is still going strong.

Fellow Historians,

The Annual UWO History Society Field Trip will be happening on Friday, November 3rd. We will be transporting participants to tour some unique historical spots in Ontario. This year, we will be visiting the Dudas Museum, the Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology, and the Whitehern Historic House and Garden.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to this event here, or email uwo.history.society@gmail.com. We will be stopping along the way for lun...ch and dinner so make sure to bring money for food (and souvenirs). Pictures are highly encouraged so get your insta ready. Most stops will be indoors, so dress comfortably.

This event is open to all students, no matter what faculty! However, to help cover costs, you must be a member of the UWO History Society (only a $10 fee). Beyond that, the field trip and all entrance costs to the site and transportation are provided.

Feel free to email or message the History Society with any questions.

We hope to see you there!
