Introduction Books. Art. Films. Plays. Random days out. The odd bit of music. Quite frankly, this blog is an excuse for me to enthuse wildly about history and historical fiction in many different forms, and to discuss them with people who are similarly passionate about the subject. At the moment the topics most likely to provoke excitement are Dorothy Dunnett's novels, Shakespeare's plays, the current countertenor and Baroque music revival, and Vikings. Join me on a gleeful rampage through London's museums, theatres and bookshops - and help me discover even more wonderful things to enjoy.
