Welcome to Memoirs of a Teapot!
Hi, my name is Caitlyn. I’m an Australian historian who loves to share stories about the past.
I have always had a passion for learning about the past – ancient, medieval and modern. It should be said though, that while ancient history is my first love, the early medieval period is my favourite. In the recent past I have been up to my elbows studying ancient history, education, and museum and heritage studies. In my spare time I like curling up with a cup of tea and losing track of time reading a 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 discovered in a fun and contemporary way. I was first inspired to start a blog when researching a tea set for an assignment – I love how objects have such fascinating back stories! But objects aren’t the only things that tell stories so I didn’t stop there; I also write about historic buildings, museum exhibitions, books, and history teaching tips. I hope that I can share my love of history with you and inspire curiosity, wonder, and excitement about past objects, places and people.
