Fascinating History


I am having a blast hanging out with my family way down in the Deep South of Mississippi, but did find some time to rifle through the latest posts on something historical. Here are a few links for your edification and entertainment. Enjoy! I’ll be back home next week and will share the highlights of my holiday.

Unofficial England – A very Public Convenience by Grace Elliot – learn about meaning of “sewer” and public toilets. Pretty cool!


Drinking Tobacco by Rebecca Swift – Just the title is intriguing!


Christ’s Hospital by Jessica Salter – History of the 16th century school for boys in Sussex


Superstitions and Bodily Health by Diane Scott Lewis – Naturally this one was super fascinating to me.


Mistress of the Manner: What did she do all day? by Maria Grace – Our newest Austen Author shares a terrific post on duties of the lady of the house.


The London Beer Flood of 1814 by Mike Peterson – You know you are curious!


Regency Era Personality: George IV by David Wilkin


Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire by Rachel Knowles
