We are delighted to welcome Galle Fort native and hobbyist historian, Uzman Anver to the 2018 Fairway Galle Literary Festival.

FGLF 2018 Participant - Uzman Anver.

Uzman Anver is a final year law student at Sri Lanka Law College. A hobbyist historian of the Fort since childhood, he has acquired a vast knowledge of the lived history of the area, along with a unique understanding of the little known nooks and crannies of the Fort.

Sharing this wealth of information, through a highly personal and narrative driven approach, has always been something he has done with friends and family.

Uzman’s family has lived in the Galle Fort for at least 8 generations. The historical, old Dutch house he calls home is a fixed feature of many a tour.
