The History Carnival
Yours truly is a lover of history, though by no means well-educated about it. So much of what consumes us today has consumed previous cultures. As they say, and it's true: Everything old is new again. The people of 300 or 3000 years ago may have lived in primitive homes and barely scraped out a living in brutal circumstances, but they were people exactly like us today.
Anyway, The History Carnival XVI is up and it looks at variety of historical events, influential things and the methodology of historians and archeologists. Tons and hours of fun reading.
