Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog!
My name is Geerte, I’m a researcher of history, specializing in the nineteenth century, located in the Netherlands. This (sometimes quite neglected) blog is the place to put all the interesting findings, strange facts, and everything that doesn’t fit in with my research but is too good to be forgotten. This blog was started because many people still regard the nineteenth century as an era full or boring prudish people and some men getting rich, while in fact is was a time full of adventures, strong women, strange inventions, and some utterly shady goings-on!
This blog is mostly for enjoyment, both mine and yours. If you want to quote from the blog for your paper you’re welcome to do so, but do be smart about it. Some of my articles cite the academic source, but some (mostly older posts) are totally based on websites, so keep that in mind.
Please feel free to leave comments! I do get a lot of them though so I can’t always answer every comment. If you’re looking for help with your homework, it might be better to just try and find the info on Google.
I’m happy to review books or movies or advertise, as long as the subject is related to the nineteenth century.
