Ruffs are in

I was having a little look at's blog today and found something rather interesting.

It seems that ruffs are back in.

British Fashion designer Gareth Pugh's new collection features a distinctive Elizabethan flavour which seemed to go down relatively well in Paris late last month.

Which just goes to show, you keep something long enough and it will come back in fashion.

First Post....We are up and running.

My father in law suggested to me today that I should have my own History blog since I am so interested in the past, and am looking for potential research projects when I finish my Masters. So here I am. I have done some research today and found this rather amusing.

I want to know where Anne Boleyn was. Left out from this list and yet, I feel, rather controversial nonetheless. Or does encouraging your husband to divorce his wife and break away from the church not count. Still it was an article that made me giggle particularly since Sarah Palin made the list. Surely more controversial women have walked the earth.
