What’s all this, then?
This newsletter is a series of investigations into historical topics, with the hope that I can illuminate some forgotten corners of history for you. I’m especially interested in looking at things — works of art, artifacts, and the like — to see what they can tell us about the past (and maybe what the past can tell us about ourselves).
Who am I?
I’m an educator and writer. I’ve been blogging for years at World History Facts, and I write about a larger set of topics (the environment, politics, and culture) on my blog at Medium. Most of all, I’m somebody who loves the challenge of trying to peer into the past.
Why should you read (and support my work)?
Every week, I’ll try to give you a window into a corner of the past that you may never have thought about before. The deeper we dig, the more fascinating and complex the past becomes. I’ll try to share a little of that with you.
The newsletter is free, but you would make my day (and help me to keep going) by supporting my work. You can subscribe as a paid member or buy me a coffee here.
Thanks to the nice people at Substack for featuring my newsletter!
