Historical reading and listening

Don’t know how I haven’t found this before: People in Place – Families, households and housing in London 1550-1720 – great to see academic research being made publicly accessible.

From a similar era, the apparently largely forgotten story of Henry VIII’s very own Vulgate Bible – although typically for Henry, it seems that by the time it came out, religiously policy had already changed so much that it was an embarrassment.

Then, changing continents, I seem to have been following around the Sassanians this week: Zenobia has a discussion on the relationship between their kings and their gods, and Radio Four’s (available in podcast until next Wednesday night) In Our Time starts with Sharpur I and his unfortunate (from the Roman point of view) encounters with Philip and Valerian.

    Hi Natalie,

    Still more stuff on the Sassanians: if readers would like to follow up the Radio 4 podcasts, there are some earlier posts about the wars between Shapur I and the Romans:

    I go to see every day a few blogs and information sites to read posts,
    except this weblog gives quality based content.

    Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
