History Carnivalesque Coming Up

Blogging Ancient/Medieval 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 Sunday, 20th February.

So please get cracking and send me notices of the best early-history blogging you've read so far in 2011 -- all of the fine, insightful, or just plain provoking posts as they struck you in the new year.

Feel free to nominate even [and 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, hop 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 Airs, Waters, Places has everything from Irish birds falling from the sky to the poisoned jellies and tarts cooked up by 'a sexually promiscuous, murderous, syphilitic sorceress'?

Undoubtedly we, too, shall cover the gamut of groovy activities -- plus whatever else takes Zenobia's fancy -- for the ancient and medieval worlds on 20 February. 

Hold this date!
