Your Humble Narrator announces with pleasure that he has launched a new weblog at H-AMINDIAN, titled “The Turtle Island Examiner.” The blog will focus on Native American history, generally (though not exclusively) pre-twentieth century, and I intend to update it twice per month. Here are links to, and summaries of, the first four posts:
Introduction: An explanation of the blog's purpose and title
Extinction Event: Dating the Anthropocene, and how post-Columbian depopulation changed the planet
Devourer of Towns: How Washington got his famous alias, for an event that happened 57 years before his own birth.
I still plan to blog here once or twice a month, though I will most likely concentrate on non-Native American history, current events, and the occasional bit of snarkiness. I hope some of my readers will also join me over at TIE, but if not I'll periodically post aggregated updates and links to Examiner posts here at Stranger Things.
