Research, Analysis and Writing


history presented with your audience in mind

In this information age, historical archives and resources are more accessible than ever. Fascinating explorations of the distant or recent past can begin simply by typing keywords into a search engine and clicking a mouse. Yet, on the worldwide web –as in popular perception– myths and legends abound. Filtering through data, recognizing credible sources, analyzing materials, and placing information in context poses significant challenge.
