I especially like Colonial Williamsburg early in the morning when the streets are empty except for the occasional dog-walker. The shadows are sharp, the sky is bright with a hint of mist, and it's much easier to imagine the 18th century town and its inhabitants. Who says ghosts only come out at night?
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
