Blog by Intriguing History
This site Intriguing History, started as a project with Maps, post-its and good old fashioned Pins in those Maps, coloured pens and attempts to timeline and connect historic events, themes, people over time.
The Blog part - takes snippets we find, might have share on Instagram and connects relates back to the core content we share on this site. The project goes forwards in 'fits and starts' as we fit around life , family and of course work.
On the Blog we are currently interested in how we can take images, play on patterns in history, mathematics, science, digital engineering and of course DNA to find a few more connections, have a play with photography, images and Instagram and a few quotes and texts here and there. Take it as the lighter side of life, not intense history stuff but a bit of fun along the way...
