History carnival, there and here
Thanks to Willisms, host of History Carnival No 13, who's made my hit counter go suddenly bananas with not just one but two mentions. I only nominated myself once, honest! (The second one is the hominid post, if you were wondering.)
And I have to say that I was going by the rules, since I'll be hosting the next carnival on August 15. Willisms has done a great job, which I'm going to have to try to live up to, so: Roll up, roll up, nominate early, nominate often. Don't be shy - nominate yourself and nominate your friends, and particularly any post on history that's off the usual trails.
You can drop a line in the comments here, or by email to natalieben (at) journ (dot) freeserve.co.uk. Please put history carnival or similar in the subject line - I'm on far too many email lists.
