This blog is the fruition of many ideas I have had over the last few years. I am currently an part time mature undergraduate studying history with the Open University. At the time of writing this I have just finished my first year of six. When I look back and reflect I believe that I have always loved history and learning about the past, even if not realising it at the time. This love has grown so much more within the last five or so years, that it led me myself to the point were I decided that I wanted to do more with my loveĀ of the subject.

As time has passed, my main interests seem to be narrowing and developing within the medieval world. My major interests are, but not exclusively the British Isles, and Western Europe during the period from 500-1250. I have created thisĀ blog to try and consolidate pieces of study that I have found interesting, whilst trying to extend and enhance my own study skills and writing.
