William Dalrymple presents a spectacular illustrated talk based on his bestseller The Last Mughal: The Fall of a Dynasty, Delhi 1857.

Deprived of real political power by the East India Company, Zafar, the last Mughal Emperor, nevertheless succeeded in creating a court of great brilliance, and presided over one of the great cultural renaissances of Indian history. Then, in 1857, Zafar's flourishing capital became the centre of an uprising that reduced his beloved Delhi to a battered, empty ruin.

Presented as a part of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.
