*The Blog is currently going a restructure and changes to it’s content and team, please keep an eye on this page for future updates*
Now here are some short introductions from the current team!
Lillian C.G: I am Lilly and I came up with the idea of a history blog in 2010. I really wanted to write about history, but about what I liked or what we didn’t cover in class. So I gathered some fellow students and started this little project. I am technically a cultural historian, with a focus on the Viking Age, and art! But I like knowing bits and pieces from all over history and the world, so often you will find me blogging about whatever I can think of – more often than not cool stuff that has nothing to do with my PhD 🙂
Alex Popović: Hello readers, I’m Alex. You’ll mostly see me writing about Viking history on this blog, as Early Medieval is my favorite period. I also enjoy looking at different forms of warfare and weaponry throughout history. I’ve been told this makes me a warfare specialist, but i still write about many other things when something takes my interest 🙂
answerellie: I am a Winchester graduate of 2016. My interests cover English and European medieval and Renaissance history covering 1100 to 1600, and my undergraduate dissertation covered King John’s Anglo-Welsh social and political alliance. I occasionally stray into the modern twentieth century but tend to focus on Medieval/Renaissance social and cultural history particularly queenship.
lauraljpotter: Hi I’m Laura, I’m a Winchester graduate of 2016 and have a Masters in Library Science but I still love my history! I contribute when I can on all manner of subjects but my main loves are on gender and social history.
Samantha: Before I joined wuhstry in 2014, I thought I knew what history I enjoyed writing about. I was always fascinated by Military History as a child, I thought that would continue well into my university studies. However since studying for my undergraduate degree in History, I have become interested in many more aspects of history. These topics include; Migration, Religion, Gender and Culture. I still like Military History but I tend to write about a variety of periods and or topics now.
Aaron Lee: “I am a single honours history student at the University of Winchester and an award-winning museum volunteer from Oxford. Despite my taste in the modern parameters of history, I am more than happy to delve into its classic, medieval and ancient realms. My interests land me with my personal assignments in the fields of 20th century action, political debacles and my local history of Oxford and her university. If you do see anything from me that deviates from this list than you know It has peaked my interest regardless!”
We will do our best to keep the blog updated with certain frequency. Feel free to post, to comment, to interact and share opinions and criticisms (seriously, please) and to share our passion.
We hope you enjoy it!
