Fixed photos in old posts

Posted Jan 13, 2014 at 16:49 CET in The blog.

I’m sorry that this blog is still inactive, but I just took some time to fix some old entries that have been broken since I left flickr. All old photo entries should now have working photos again!

Source criticism

Posted Feb 10, 2009 at 13:41 CET in The blog.

I just want to write a little disclaimer, just in case it’s not obvious to you. When it comes to history you should always be critical towards the source, especially on the Internet. Consider questions like why was it written, when was it written, who wrote it and how likely they are to have or give the correct information, and so on.

In many cases I have no idea how truthful the different sources I link on this blog are, but I believe they can spark an interest and lead to further and more thorough research.


New address!
