Indeed, a year ago I was in this position, writing my UCAS personal statement, racking my brains as to what I could "wow" the admissions tutors with. Yet it occurred to me that I don't have a particular area of history that I take a selective fancy to. Yes I've enjoyed nearly all the history I've been taught, but until my final year at school, studying history has been rather constricting.
So, therefore, this blog is primarily for people that are finding themselves in the same situation as I was and, to a certain extent, still find myself in. I hope to build up a collection of posts on "All Things History", not only to broaden my own knowledge, but to give students that are perhaps too engrossed in the thrilling routine of school life a chance to discover something they didn't know...A break away.
