Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Coronation of Charlemagne as Holy Roman Emperor, Christmas Day 800

On Christmas Day ‘History…the Interesting Bits’ marks its 1st birthday. I would like to thank all my readers for sticking with me, and for all your support and encouragement – I couldn’t have done it without you.

It has been an exciting year and a steep learning curve for me, but I am very happy with the results!

Articles have covered many different subjects in history, from kings and queens, brothers and sisters, heroines, mistresses and witchcraft to abbeys, castles and caves  – and even Sir Lancelot – with a couple of book reviews thrown in.

It has been a lot of fun and I hope there has been something of interest for everyone.

Roll on 2016….

Once again, thank you everyone for your support. A very MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you and a magnificent NEW YEAR.

Best wishes, Sharon

    This is a cracking good blog, Sharon.

    You’ve come a long way in a short time. Can’t wait to see what 2016 brings.

    James 🙂
