Dr Lynne Attwood, a sociologist and social historian specialising in 20th century Russian history, travelled on the the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express this summer as Guest Speaker and was so very excited to be travelling through Russia in the year of the centenary of the Russian Revolution;
"Whatever you think of the society which it brought into being, the Revolution – or Revolutions, to be accurate (there were two of them in that year alone) - were indisputably momentous events. Of course a lot has happened over the last century, and the ‘first socialist country’ has now embraced capitalism with a vengeance. All the same, the revolutions and their aftermath are a huge part of the country’s history and identity - or so I thought."
Read Lynne's fascinating account of her travels on the Trans-Siberian Railway in this momentous year, where she shares the varying perspectives of the Russian communities she meets along the way.
