Welcome to my blog and thankyou for reading.
I live in the North of England and have a passion for history. I’m very much the amateur historian, my profession is in Software Development so I spend most of my day dealing with the constantly changing world of computers. I’ve never written a book and my academic study of history was over when I was 16!
For me, reading history is a form of escapism. I don’t have a massive fascination with historical figures but I love to read and write about historical events and everyday life. It’s fascinating to be transported back to a time when life was so different and yet is intrinsically linked to modern life.
My blog is aimed at people like me. People who want to read a bite sized slice of history in their lunch hour, on the bus or just casually surfing the net.
