Hi, I’m Megan, a lover of all things vintage and historical. I’m also a big fan of cats, crafts, cake and a good glass of wine. You’ll find me either behind the scenes in a museum store, visiting (and being mesmerised by) beautiful country houses or scrolling historical databases online.
I’m a graduate of Philosophy and have just completed an MA in Medical History at the University of York. My research interests vary, from 19th century medical and dress reform, to identity within handcrafted objects, specifically the idea of spiritual transcendence. My MA dissertation embedded all these aspects, focusing on the life and work of Madame Roxey Ann Caplin a writer, a reformer and an amazing innovator. I suggest you all read her literature.
My intentions for this blog is to document my historical adventures, research ideas and my journey into the the world of museums and heritage.
