Hello, and welcome to DJChronicle!
My name is Daisy, and I’m a student of History and Literature at the University of East Anglia. When I’m not buried in books or scrambling to write essays, you can usually find me touring old buildings and museums.
DJChronicle is named after my initials (DJC), and chronicles. Here you can discover snippets of historical findings, anecdotes about my university life, tales of my explorations, and much more besides.
My passion for history started in a very simple place – Horrible Histories on CBBC. I still know the chorus to the Monarchs’ Song – which has proved useful on a couple of occasions! I’m always looking to visit historical sites and I’m often happiest when on the battlements of a castle or exploring the grounds of a monastery. When it comes to my studies, the seventeenth century is my speciality. In particular, I’m fascinated by the popular politics and beliefs of the English Civil Wars. You can read more on this in my article for ERA magazine.
Thank you for visiting my blog; I sincerely hope you enjoy it!
