Strange name, good blog. Gavin Robinson is moving on from a PhD on horse supply in the English Civil War:
This is mostly a history blog, but Iâ€™m aiming to be eclectic. Iâ€™m likely to be posting works in progress; reflections on things Iâ€™ve been reading; extracts from and criticism of my PhD thesis; and random thoughts on history, historiography, culture, literature, information technology, and, of course, other peopleâ€™s blogs. This is all part of my strategy to broaden my horizons.
He's also weighed in on the discussion about when the Second World War started, with a post questioning the need for a single metanarrative of the war. His conclusion that 'Since we canâ€™t dispense with the Second World War but canâ€™t define it very easily, we might just have to accept that itâ€™s fuzzy around the edges' seems reasonable to me. I like Gavin's interest in theory, despite (or perhaps because of) the fact that I am resolutely empirical myself.
