Georgian blog posts (update)

There is such a lot to say about the Georgian period that no course can cover every aspect. From time to time I will be posting some interesting blog posts that are relevant to the period. Here are two:

The first is a summary of the plot of Fanny Burney's best-selling Evelina. The second is a very yukky account of what Georgian ladies put on their hair. They are both very enjoyable reads.

The latest is a fascinating account of the press reaction to the murder of the Earl of Sandwich's mistress, Martha Ray, by the Reverend James Hackman, which is briefly discussed in my earlier post. You may think that newspapers haven't changed that much.
