History carnival, and an apology...
First the apology, to those who've asked and those who haven't: yes Friday Femmes Fatales is running late again this week. (Hopefully it will arrive tonight.)
Now the excuses: Green campaiging (1,000 newsletters out in the past two days, and 2,000 sitting reproachfully on the floor that should mostly be delivered before postal ballots go out at the end of this week for the May 4 election), and I'm working on an all-new, shiny Philobiblon. There's nothing but a rough layout yet (no content), but it is philobiblon.co.uk, for anyone who feels like being a design critic.
And today I'm off on a jaunt - to cycle the Thames (well as much of the Thames path as I can manage).
But would I leave you without anything to read? Of course not! History Carnival No 29 is up over on (a)musings of a grad student. I haven't had time for a proper read, but it looks like a cracker.
