The main focus will be very narrow: England in the time period circa 1440-1485, with forays into other places and periods as well. Sometimes these forays are closely related to the main topic; sometimes not. I am a Ricardian, but I’m an equal opportunity researcher: I will look into any question that happens to catch my fancy. To paraphrase Virginia Woolf’s quote about libraries, ‘I ransack historic sources, and find them full of sunk treasure.’ Those small sunk treasures are my passion.
I originally wanted this blog to be a place for me to share some of my findings – whether large or small – that might be of interest to others besides myself. I am not an academic historian, but simply a hopelessly nosey individual who loves to delve into things, to discover and speculate.
