The History Anorak is first of all, a person. Someone with an interest in history and archaeology and much, much more. But the History Anorak is also a website that has grown out of those interests. That's where you are now. This will be primarily a history site but it might not be what you think of as history! History often seems like lots of kings and dates and nothing to do with ordinary people. So this site will try to concentrate on the real and everyday things that would have mattered to the majority.
