Farewell to the History Spot
I’m not doing a new history spot blog post here this week. In fact I won’t be doing any more history spot posts on the Landlord Law Blog at all in future.
Why? I’ve set up a whole new blog for them!
Why a new history blog?
I started doing the History Spot posts because I really, really, wanted to write about the history of law. But the more I wrote, the more I felt that the Landlord Law Blog was not really the place for them.
To justify having the posts on the Landlord Law Blog, they really had to have a landlord and tenant focus, but that is a bit limiting. Then I felt that to do the job properly there also needed to be a timeline and a glossary. Maybe book review posts, and visits to historical places. I can’t impose that on Landlord Law Blog readers! So a new blog was called for.
Fortunately the domain www.historyoflaw.co.uk was available. So after quite a bit of work, the site is now online.
Whats on the new History of Law Blog?
I have copied over all the History Posts from here, but was not able to copy the comments, so please feel free to add them again! Comments are always welcome.
The Domesday Book
This weeks post, quite by chance, is rather an important one – the Domesday Book. It was fascinating reading about the Domesday book, which is described by the National Archives as Britain’s finest treasure. No other country (so far as I am aware) has anything like it. Its amazing to think that this record has lasted over 900 years! I wonder if anything we write today will last half as long.
So if you have enjoyed the history spot posts here, please do visit the new blog, and perhaps sign up to get new posts by email. And let me know what you think of it!
