    Have developed an interest in 13th century history and created a related blog. So far have posted

    A review of Sophie Therese Ambler's biography 'The song of Simon de Montfort ,England's First Revolutionary and the Death of Chivalry'.

    An interview with battle fiction writer David Pilling.

    An article about the famine that hit in England in 1258.

    An article about the death of Little Sir Hugh of Lincoln in 1255.

    Want to keep a balance between the power politics and battles along with lesser known subjects . Also eventually hope to start looking the history of Asia in the 13th century.

    Have updated the blog with a post about the Domus Conversorum , which was established in 1232 by Henry III in what is now Chancery Lane, London, as a hostel for Jewish converts to Christianity.
