Living at the edge of the world

23 September 2011

It’s one of the things I like most about doing what we do (i.e. history): that moment when somewhere or something makes you think, ‘How the hell did anyone get here? Why did they come here? What did they do here? And how did they ever live here?’ and it drives you deeper and deeper into a spiral of research, sparked by the desire to delve into the soul of humanity and better understand what makes/made people tick. Not that I know much about life at this particular location (all knowledgeable direction gratefully accepted), but I think you know what I mean.
