The Potted History of Liverpool has been published, and has now settled down. I am now pondering what my next subject should be. rhubarb rhubarb.

Opening of LIverpool to Manchester Railway

I cannot think what to put here.


  • The Victorians. I have covered them to a fair degree in other potted histories that I have written. However, I probably need to research the period from the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660 up to the end of the 18th century
  • Computing. My career in this area provides me with a solid background on the subject. I should investigate changes in the last 10 years
  • Eleanor of Aquitaine. Although I am quite keen on this subject, I consider that a number of potted histories already exist, e.g. on Wikipedia.
