The Learning Through the Ages newsletter has moved to Substack, the popular platform for independent writing, and is now available on email, online at learningthroughtheages.substack.com or in the Substack app.
For new readers, I’ve been posting some highlights from this blog, including articles on:
- how the first ‘Head Mistress’, Frances Mary Buss, revolutionised education for young women
- Matthew Arnold and the meaning of the phrase ‘the best that has been thought and said’
- the Latin verse that could save your life in medieval England
- and the reason why certain fee-paying private schools are called ‘public’.
Look out for an all-new essay coming soon on the remarkable role that early Sunday schools played in bringing education to the masses in the UK and beyond.
