FOLLOW MY BLOG - HELEN RAE RANTS!
Hello! I'm Helen Cox, and I'd like to welcome you to Herstory Writing & Interpretation.
Have you ever found medieval history dull, dry and boring? Or been turned off by 'traditional' historians who dwell on facts and figures without taking into account the living, breathing, feeling human beings who made it all happen? I have - which is why I founded Herstory, a business which tries to bring the 15th century to life in a vivid, entertaining way. I like to think of it as 'exploring the soft underbelly of history'... considering what made our medieval ancestors 'tick' - especially the women, so often written out or ignored. I believe this approach gives a better understanding of our forebears, and leads to a fuller, more accurate interpretation of the evidence they have left behind in the historical and archaeological record.
So on this site you will find information about what I can offer as a freelance writer, lecturer and costumed interpreter with particular interests in medieval history and the Wars of the Roses, including presentations, guided walks and services for schools, as well as information on my publications both fact and fiction. The site is regularly updated - I hope you'll like what you find, and remember to check out the News page for latest developments!
