History Resources for your Game28 August, 2015
A variety of interesting articles and sites about history I have found recently and wish to share:
An amazing site that is a collection of thousand of aerial photographs of England taken between 1919 and 1953, Britain from Above.
A good article about the new display, Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire, at will be at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Anna Wintour Costume Center. The Victorian attitude toward death was so very different from ours.
While this bends into a political discussion, it still has interesting information on the history and development of dyes.
One of the ways news was spread of judicial punishment in early modern Europe was through murder ballads, recount the crimes and (more importantly) punishment of those executed. Your campaign needs these.
Any news of a historical nature catch your eye lately?
