Echoes of Our Past

Hunches on History

Normally I try to base my weekly columns on historic facts. I use the same research methods I would employ for a scholarly paper, with the only difference being I don't use footnotes and reference lists for the column.

This week will be different; it will be mostly about historic "hunches". In the course of doing research, particularly local history research, you often come across circumstances that suggest possible explanations for things that happened years ago.
