SASH Session, July 8 at 12 pm ET: An Illustrated Guide to Anglo-American Football History Before 1850 Updated with Video

The SASH Executive Board invites you to attend July’s SASH session on July 8 at 12 pm ET. The session will feature Tom Langton presenting “An Illustrated Guide to Anglo-American Football History Before 1850.”

Tom is the son of the accomplished British sports journalist and sports art and history aficionado Harry Langton (1929–2000)  who established the world famous FIFA-Langton Collection, now owned by the National Football Museum Trust. Tom took over his family archives and company in 2013 as Langton Football Archives and has developed a new collection based on a range of traditional and modern themes that is used for exhibitions and displays. Tom is a biologist by profession and has particular interest in Football anthropology before 1800 and in Football Fine Art through the ages.

Tom’s presentation will show evidence of ball games across America, Europe and Asia and reflect on their relevance to the origins of Association Football or Soccer. Links between Europe (Britain especially) and North America from the late medieval period until the early 19th century will be particularly investigated.

The presentation will be illustrated with images from the FIFA-Langton Collection and the Langton Football Archives collection and touch on the rules of Football games played before codification.
