Welcome to Memoirs of a Teapot!

About the Author

I’ve always had a passion for learning about history – ancient, medieval, and modern. As I discover more about the past, I’ve found that artefacts often have fascinating back-stories. Objects give us a physical and personal connection to the past, which for me (and I hope for you too), makes history come alive!

So, a little more about me: in the recent past I have been up to my elbows in ancient history, education, and museum and heritage studies. The early Medieval period is one of my favourite eras, and my top country to visit would definitely be England. I also love tea, teapots, and tea related memorabilia. One of my favourite spare time activities is to lose myself in a good fantasy or classic novel. I can’t go past Jane Eyre, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve read that one!

I began this blog in order to learn more about the past and to share what I’ve learnt with you in a fun and contemporary way. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy reading the content of this blog, but I also hope that it might inspire you to love history more. Who knows? perhaps an object you own might have a fascinating story!
