We share their stories, discuss their impact and why they've been ignored or sidelined, and often get a little mad at the patriarchy.

Many contemporary histories written in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century were poetic and heroic in tone, blending fact and fiction, myths and legends.

For Bury, the facts of history may be legendary or romantic in nature, but they should be recounted in a scholarly and non-judgmental manner, ...
