Presenter(s): 

Whether you write historical novels or fantasy based on history, it's important to recognize the actual historical diversity of the world you are writing about. Contemporary media presents a white-washed view of the past, which does not match the historic record. From black Roman soldiers in Scotland to Hawaiian nobles in England, learn about some of the ways to approach the question of diversity in your historical fiction.
