Meet the Nerd

I'm Irene Carstairs, and I'm here to make you look smarter than you really are. I do historical research, so you don't have to.

My parents gave me the Oxford Children's History Encyclopedia for Christmas when I was eight, and it's all been downhill from here. I'm fascinated by the forgotten corners of history--the civilizations and the women who are so often overlooked. As well as the ridiculous nonsense inherent to human nature. I love some good nonsense.

This blog began in March of 2017, and has been growing every since. It updates every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Like what you see? Follow the blog on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter for more historical fun.
