In Belfast, Northern Visions TV and historian Barry Sheppard have been partnering up for quite a while to produce the excellent History Now. For anyone interested in Irish history it has become a must watch, given the volume and breadth of topics Barry and the NVTV team get through. I was delighted to chat with Barry for their latest episode, the first of their shows that has necessarily had to be recorded remotely. We had a brief discussion about conflict archaeology before diving into the topic of the Irish in the American Civil War. You can check it out below, and I would strongly encourage anyone with a broader interest in Irish history to take a journey through their back catalogue!
