Non-Boring History is the ONLY newsletter of its kind, in which an academic historian and Brit in the US (me, Dr. Annette Laing, cheers!) leads you on a rollercoaster ride through British and US history that might seem random, (and kind of is), but brings you close up to academic history and the joys of museums, and gets you thinking like a historian, only without tests and other painful experiences.
