Hello. That seems a good place to start. I’m Jo, currently a part-time PhD student at Anglia-Ruskin, and a house parent and history teacher in an international boarding school. My aim with this is to share a few of the interesting and quirky stories that I find as I research WWI Cambridgeshire. I’ll also be posting reviews of history books, primarily WWI books, but there will be others (I must learn about the Middle Ages to start teaching it next term, eek!)
And, of course, the odd bit of cake, or cake history, or amusing baking disaster, because what goes better with history than cake? Well, tea, I suppose, but history and tea was apparently already taken, so cake it is. I do enjoy baking, and my students enjoy eating it – something like forty mince pies have been consumed in my house since I made them last night.
