Posted by on Jul 4, 2016 in 18th Century U.S., Historical Tidbits | 3 comments

Today is Independence Day for the United States. What most Americans don’t know, however, is that, while Wales never managed an independence day for itself, Welsh people had a huge impact on the founding of the United States and were leading inciters and leaders of its revolution. Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, which was ratified on the 4th of July, writes in his autobiography: “The tradition in my father’s family was that their ancestor came to this country from Wales, and from near the mountain of Snowdon,...

Victorian Inventions by Anna Castle

Posted by on Jun 13, 2016 in 19th England, Featured Book | 2 comments

The Victorians may be responsible for many of the world’s ills, like post-colonialist political disorder, industrial pollution, and rampant consumerism, but they by gosh knew how to have fun.

But what about the also-rans — the...
