Last month we released an extension to our story on Black lion tamers in Hull and East Yorkshire. The latest feature was written by Martin Hale, the grandson of 'Black Joe' Maccomo.
After reading our feature on the lion tamers, Martin was astounded to recognise his grandfather, Albert May, in the header of the story, showing him as part of the Manders Menagerie.
Read Martin's feature on the fascinating life of Albert May.
Today we have published a blog post rounding up the project's activity in 2018, while looking forward to the next Our Histories Revealed exhibition which starts at Goole Museum on Tuesday 5 February 2019.

The Drowning of Richard Lisles
Last month we released the story of Richard Lisles, written by guest writer John D. Ellis. The story covers the events surrounding the drowning of Lisles, an African American soldier, in the River Humber in August 1820.
Read the story of Richard Lisles.
