About Me

Hello, I’m Alison – welcome to my blog.  I’m interested in lots of things which you’ll read about here – like history, art, architecture, books, films,  and music.  You will also read about my interest in Eleanor.

I currently live in Scotland.  I have a regular day job, I am also a guide at a local castle plus I am studying History of Art at University.  The rest of the time I squeeze in being an an aspiring writer, photographer and very part time genealogist.

As an aspiring writer and avid reader I also like to host other writer’s work.  Please see my reviews page for more information if you would like a book reviewed by me.

Eleanor is Eleanor of Castile, medieval queen and wife of King Edward I of England – the reason I started this blog.  Eventually I hope to have a separate site for information about her and her family that I have collected over many years.
