The latest history carnival, No 13, is now up at Willisms.
I’m not just telling you about this because there are some great posts collected there, on subjects ranging from “The Empire of Vegetables” to “ice-age phallic symbols”, to the “intelligence of hominids”. (Yes I admit it, the last is one of mine.)
I’m also telling you this because I’m host of No 14, which will be on my blog, Philobiblon, on August 15. And I’m seeking contributions until August 14; I’ve got a lot to live up to.
Unlike my earlier hosting of Carnivalesque, which was specifically about early modern history, this is a broad-brush carnival.
“History” is a large category – so if you read, or post, a great blog item about anything from Neanderthals to the fall of Boris Yeltsin, (no not quite the same category) , tell me about it – here in the comments, or by email: natalieben (at) journ (dot) freeserve.co.uk.
There’s more about the history carnivals here, including a complete list from No 1 – just in case you’re having a very slow day at work.
