For Art, Literature, Culture category, The Vanished Hand:

A collage of the old, weird world exposing the avant-garde alchemy of history. Though not limited to this, my particular interest is American history from the Civil War through the Great Depression, as explored through music, poetry, art, photography, and various miscellanea.

Thanks so much for compiling this list - it's wonderful.

Can you add the Making History Podcast Blogsite <>; to your list? Perhaps it would be best categorized under the Digital History heading.

Mark R Stoneman - 4/15/2008

There are two changes in my blogs.

"Clio and Me" is now located at

I have discontinued History Survey, which I am migrating together with some other material to a personal website/wiki.

Tad Suiter - 2/20/2008

I've moved "The Leisurely Historian..."

The new site url is

Also, I'd actually like to change categories, if that's alright. It's pretty much all Digital History and/or US History...

Or, if two categories is verboten, maybe just "Historians who write about many things..."?


Heather Munro Prescott - 1/7/2008

I'd like to nominate my blog, "Knitting Clio," which could be listed under Historians who write about many things:

I've changed the name, however, from "&#921;&#931;&#932;&#927;&#929;&#921;&#913;" to "The Backward Glance." The URL is still

Gillian Sarah Polack - 4/27/2007

There are more food history blogs that could usefully be added to your listing. I don't know if Janet is a professional historian, but her blog at The Old Foodie is interesting. Mine is less consistent ( but I *am* an historian, so it all evens out :).

David Saraiva - 4/13/2007

A blog about ancient history written to be accessible to anyone:

Gavin Robinson - 4/7/2007

It's only "Holocaust History Archive" that's dodgy. "Holocaust Controversies" is genuine history that seeks to debunk deniers.

Gavin Robinson - 4/6/2007

Did you look at "Holocaust History Archive" before adding it to the blogroll? Are you aware that it's a holocaust denier site? ie run by deniers to spread their propaganda.

Ralph E. Luker - 3/18/2007

Thanks, Brett. This is _really_ helpful.

Ralph E. Luker - 1/24/2005

Grant, We'd going to continue to keep an eye on 50th Star. It isn't yet clear to me that the bench there is as deep in history as we like to see on the History Blogroll.

Grant W Jones - 1/23/2005

I'll modestly self-submit for the "contemporary commentary" category:
