Lone research is not easy and the last 18 months set new records for difficulty. Even if the pandemic ends soon the obstacles to accessing libraries and other archives will remain challenging. Zoom discussions have their uses, but involve a relative few. The time has come to extend the discussion. I am therefore setting up a History Mysteries project to widen the focus, and hopefully discuss with others some key issues.
This will involve my defining issues for debate and inviting colleagues to contribute to debate by email – in ways that Zoom cannot do. If you can help, then I would like to hear from you.
If there is a resulting agreement then it will be posted on site, all contributions being acknowledged.. If not there will be a continuing private discussion group which will look at specifics.
