81. FROM SCROLLS TO SCROLLING: WRITING HISTORY IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Laura Bailey, Honor Cargill-Martin, Rachel Cockerell

Stove Tent by Viking
While spending endless days in dusty archives is still very much a feature of the life of the historian, technology has changed history writing completely. The new generation of historians have the most incredible range of resources at their fingertips, but how does a historian present a new narrative when the primary resources are mostly long gone? Rachel Cockerell, author of a book about the search for a Jewish homeland before World War I, Honor-Cargill Martin, biographer of the Empress Messalina, and medieval historian Laura Bailey will compare their experiences of writing history in the 21st century.
