Drumroll please ... History Blogging Awards
The first annual Cliopatra Blogging Awards have been announced. (Unfortunately my role as a judge didn't include an air ticket to America, so I'm slightly behind the times here. The history blog of the year is Blog Them Out of the Stone Age. Love the title - not so keen of the white on black text ... hint, hint!
Find all of the other winners through the link above - there are some brilliant blogs there, including the best new blog BibliOdyssey, which was one I had a hand in chosing. Even if you think history "isn't your thing", go and look at the pictures - they are gorgeous, and fascinating. Looking at it today there are illustrations from Sir Walter Scott novels, primitive 17th-century hand grenades and Lebanese art posters.
