What is the Chronicles of London blog?

I’ve set up Chronicles of London to blog about Medieval and early modern London. For my research, I work on 1400-1550: expect to see that period well represented. I also want to expand my comfort zone so will range backwards and forwards from 600 to the Great Fire of 1666. I’m especially interested in history, literature and learning.

Who am I?

My name is David Mason, and I’m a doctoral researcher. I work on late medieval merchants and their books: what they read, what they wrote and what they were interested in.
