Below you find a collection of links to blogs I’ve written for other websites. You can find the majority of them on the British Library’s Science and Untold Lives blogs, which are worth checking out regularly for posts by BL staff and researchers.
There’s another blog that I’ve written for WRoCAH, the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities, and one for mainlymuseums.com.
Enjoy reading 🙂

To be fair, this isn’t a blog as such, but I’m including it here because it doesn’t fit the “publications” box either. Back in 2014, I wrote the wikipedia entry on Joachim Heinrich Campe’s trilogy Die Entdeckung von Amerika (The Discovery of America). It was featured on the English wikipedia’s homepage on 10 July 2014, and the current version is still very much my original piece.
