Carnival time

To those who are new to the world of blogging, the discovery that there are lots of little 'sub-spheres' within the 'blogosphere' can be quite thrilling. I first found out about 'History blogging' from here a few months ago, for which I will always be thankful. Generally speaking, historically minded bloggers can be found at the History Carnival, twice a month. The latest History Carnival can be joined here, at 'The Old is the New New', which includes among other things one bloggers' list of the ten worst Americans and a blogger who seems to enjoy writing about 'Airpower and British Society, 1908-1939', of all things. Also included are some precient thoughts on 'historiography', while you might reconsider the way you think about Stalinist Russia after reading this. Not included, but for those interested in looking at old photos of Leeds, UK, might like to check out here, while I know at least one reader who will be interested in this blog, 'Religions of the Ancient Mediterranean'. The trouble is, of course,that once you enter the world of History Carnival, you can find the whole thing dangerously addictive. Don't say I didn't warn you...
