One day in history

I’ve signed up to support History Matters. It is a campaign to raise awareness of the impact and relevance of history to our lives, and to get more people involved in the heritage of England and Wales. As a student of history it is hugely important to me that we don’t just rush on headlong through our lives without pausing to think about the impact of the past, and the impact that we are leaving on others’ past.

Today is One Day in History. It is an ordinary Tuesday with no particular significance. The idea is that we can all go and record the events of the day as we experienced them, on a mass blog that will be kept on record in the British Library. I’ll certainly be recording my entry later.

Update: link to BBC coverage.
