Hi all — Happy Thanksgiving!! In honor of the day — or more in honor of, “I’m actually reading an article in my field and hanging out with historian friends,” I have two questions:
- So I’m reading the new Early Mediaeval Europe and Geoffrey Koziol has a new article where he says that the “Charles the Straightforward” name (rather than Charles the Simple) isn’t really a good translation after all. But what I want to know is who started to call him Straightforward anyway.
- also, one of my friends, Krautboy, is thinking of starting a blog. He’s a historian of Technology and is looking for other bloggers/LJ people in his field. So if you know anybody or any good blogs that historians of S&T would like, please pass them on!
