I always considered my Poppop to be a big, tough man. He played football in high school. He was a marine with a career spanning 30 years. But babies would always bring out the most gentle and kind side of him.

Mapa feito em 1760 representando parte da Freguesia da Sé - Centro do Rio de Janeiro (escala 1:7280)*. Tô simplesmente encantado... Abrindo a imagem no PC, dá pra ver a Rua do Ouvidor e outros pontos famosos! No arquivo online da Biblioteca Nacional [SophiA] encontramos relíquias assim nas dimensões originais! Pra um pesquisador-historiador tarado por fontes como eu, o mapa em si É o tesouro hahaha *essa escala fui eu que calculei. Pode estar errada; encarem como uma estimativa haha! Não sabia que encontraria um mapa do meu bairro com escala tão reduzida assim.

The Waypoint : Ironclads Team marked coordinates of the crash site pieces to later map out other approaches to the site and to build a digital crash scene for further investigation back at the office.  On Saturday 20171104 TAD Team members and customers rallied at our Boulder Outpost and embarked on a day trip off-roading in the mountains of Colorado looking for the remains of a down military aircraft from 1965.

One of the splendours in the historic collection of Modemuseum Hasselt is a collapsible top hat, made around 1930 by Fromont, a hatter from Brussels.

The collapsible top hat or ‘gibus’ was first patented in 1834 by the French hatter Antoine Gibus.

This hat could be transformed to a flat oval disk with just a flick of the wrist. It was designed especially for a theatre visit, where the owner could easily store his folded hat beneath his chair.

The Institute of Making - I'd love a job here (http://www.instituteofmaking.org.uk/about) My undergraduate classes in Material Culture really made me think about objects differently: who bought them? From where? Why? Changes in the purpose of objects, materials used etc. Did you know that forceps were made by blacksmiths in the eighteenth century? But who came up with the idea? It's a fascinating area of historical research... one day I'll write a book about object analysis (because I think it's really interesting) 📝 #instituteofmaking #ucl #makingandknowing #materialculture #objectanalysis #historicalresearch #object #design #creativity #architecture #building #campus #historian #pastmistress

Reforço de petição da Câmara Eclesiástica do Rio de Janeiro em 1744 por uma graninha extra ao rei português Dom João V para cobrir as despesas. Sim, vale lembrar que no período colonial brasileiro vigorava o regime de Padroado Real; que delegava ao Rei (chefe do Estado) os poderes do Papa (chefe da Igreja). COLUNA À DIREITA: "Por causa dos grandes gastos, que tem a Câmara desta cidade, se põem em igual empenho por não ter rendimento que possa suprir suas despesas: e como se façam avenidas com a supérflua grandeza com que se dá cera nas funções que a dita Câmara faz na cidade de São Sebastião, e seu oitavario, corpo de Deus e Anjo Custódio, que no fim das ditas festas soma em mais de 3000 cruzados, pois se costuma dar, não só aos cidadãos que assistem a festividade, e clérigos e outras pessoas que não [(constam)] [] provisão (...)" #paleography

Three days a week Tilda and I head to the archives at the Lunenburg Academy for my new contract position. They kindly agreed to give me access during off hours which makes the whole “working with a baby” thing much more relaxed. We arrive mid-morning, I set up a playpen, and if the gods smile on me I lay Tilda down for a nap. Then I get to dive into the history of this incredible town that I’m lucky enough to call home ✨📰📚📝❤️

Been juggling this one as well: "The Idea of History" by R. G. Collingwood. Dense, but worth it if you're a history nerd. It's particularly about historiography (that is, 'the study of the study of history' - the various methods by which historians approach, examine, and write about history). This particular copy was printed in 1974 and is in great condition for a vintage paperback - has a lovely, strong old book smell.

E is for... Education!

Can you tell which on is my Poppop? Smack dab in the middle, sitting up straight and looking like he's going place. And go places he did! From small town Kentucky he went on to attend the College of William and Mary where he played football (quarterback), met the love of his life, and graduated with a degree in Economics. After college, he was invited to attend training camp by several NFL teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Cardinals (now the Arizona Cardinals). He turned down the NFL and chose instead to serve his country and joined the United States Marine Corps. His military career spanned over 30, before he retired at the rank of Colonel. He continued his service to his country when he was asked to join the State Department as the Associate Director of Plans and Operations for the Sinai Support Mission and then as Consultant with the Multi National Force and Observers – which was an international peacekeeping mission born out of the Camp David Accords.

any handwriting experts out there? currently doing some research & cannot decipher the two words written as the cause of death on this certificate. the second word looks to be perhaps something like nephritis, but I'm not absolutely sure. anyone have any thoughts? #handwriting #handwritinganalysis #whatdoesitsay #questionoftheday #penmanship #historicalresearch
D is for... Dress!

This picture is of my maternal great-grandfather, Stevie, from 1912 when he was 6 years old... and it was still considered appropriate for young boys to wear dresses.

It is very common for children to remain in this state of dress until they entered formal school or even later if the boy was schooled at home. When boys reached this age they were "breeched" meaning dressed in pants. It was an emotional time for many a mother who was losing her "baby". The fashion trend of boys in dresses slowly died out as the ready to wear clothing market offered clothing choices that became even more child centered. By the 1920's, most boys and some girls were dressed in a "romper," a one-piece jumper pantsuit. Some "child experts" then became concerned that dressing girls in pants would somehow destroy their femininity!

C is for... Cortes! Or was it Carlysle... Or maybe it was Cordia... My great-grandfather, Daddy B, did not like his middle name.

C is for... Cortes! Or was it Carlysle... Or maybe it was Cordia... My great-grandfather, Daddy B, did not like his middle name. So much so that through the years he switched it up whenever he felt like it. A few that we know of are Carlysle, Cordia, and Carlton. By the way, his middle name was actually Cortes (which was his father's first name).
Studying our ship silhouettes ... This chart appeared in the newspaper of the Brooklyn Armed Guard Center, The Pointer. The Armed Guard Center was located at the corner of 51st St and 1st Ave and was the largest base for Navy sailors assigned to gun crews aboard merchant ships during World War II. Today the site houses an NYC Sanitation garage, but a commemorative flagpole marks the former barracks. .

Soviet experimental residence at #Dinamo Leningradsky, Prospect 27, we visited in #Moscow from 1939-1941 showing self supporting prefabricated residential cladding panels -(still an absolutely beautiful block) -the aim then to integrate aesthetics with the need to rationalise and #industrialise manufacturing and #construction sites. Plus ca change? This housing #typology #evolution was interrupted by the war. It's an unfathomable wonder to me, how much in Australia and NZ we reinvent the wheel. Why do we do this, given the intelligent experimenting and the legacy of evidence that has proceeded our 'new world' affordable dwelling dramas?  #babesinthewoods #mediumdensityliving  #collectivesociety #historicalresearch  #architecture #tectonics #masteplanning  #nzpol

A is for apple 🍎

Beautiful Stribling Orchard. My family has enjoyed apple picking at this orchard for 4 generations! My great-grandmother Margaret enjoyed the view and the peacefulness of this area so much that we spread her ashes at the top of mountain overlooking the orchard.

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm spending the day at the farm giving the house a new coat of paint. 😊  Leaves are falling, the sun is shining and this has been a wonderful day.  Joining in on #floralfriday though my sunflowers may or may not be real,  they look nice next to the gardening encyclopedias. 😉

On this day, 951 years ago, boats full of thousands of warriors, horses, and tons of supplies landed in Pevensey Bay, kicking off the Norman Conquest of England.
To find out how William became the man who would one day conqueror England, read my novel "Becoming the Conqueror" - see link in bio.

This summer I fell completely in love with original practice reconstructions, and I've missed it terribly since being back in NYC. Thus I've decided to take on the challenge of recreating this c. 1780 gown from Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion 1, with the goal of getting it as close to the original garment as I possibly can. This means natural threads, potato starch glazing, and, of course, stitching entirely by hand (but sadly not by candle light 🙁).The idea is to get a sense not only of the scale of the work that went into clothing in the 18th century, but also to better understand the people who wore them. Since I'm making no (intentional!) alterations to the pattern--taken by Ms Arnold directly from the original garment--I will be able to get a sense of the original size and proportions of the woman who owned this gown. It's a very intimate process, almost as if you're bringing someone back to life after 200 years! I hope to document my journey (as often as I remember to!), and hope to finish the project by the end of this year. Stay tuned for some historical costuming adventures!

Starting to read my first article for my British History 1480-1620 seminar next week. The topic is on Henry VII and so I'm reading Steven Gunn's article in the Historical Research journal, volume 82.

Part 2/2.
This week's snippet comes from Pickering castle in Yorkshire, where I'm reflecting on the darkest period of William's life.

The Franco-English cleric, Orderic Vitalis, claimed as many as 100,000 people died as a consequence of the Harrying of the North. 
Destitute families threw themselves at the mercy of the Church. Famine and exposure to cold meant that the loss of homes and crops was as good as a death sentence. Even by the standards of the time, this was pretty brutal stuff.
