History Carnivalesque

Blogging About History

The next ancient/medieval edition of Carnivalesque -- the monthly showcase for top history blogging -- will appear right here at Zenobia: Empress of the East on 19th December.

So start sending me notices of the best early-history blogging that you've read in November. And keep up the good work as you come across particularly fine, insightful -- or just plain provoking posts as they appear during December.

Feel free to nominate even [or especially!] your own writings as well.

You can email me directly at judith@judithweingarten.com or use the ancient/medieval nomination form.

If you're not familiar with history carnivals, pop over to the History Carnivals Aggregator where you'll find up-to-the-minute news on history-related carnivals. Did you know, for example, that the early modern Carnivalesque now up at Investigations of a Dog has everything from radical politics to sex and violence?

Undoubtedly we, too, shall cover the gamut of groovy activities -- plus whatever else takes Zenobia's fancy -- for the ancient and medieval worlds on 19th December. Hold this date!
