This project is still a work-in-progress. It started life as a draft for a PhD thesis. The work done was still of interest when that was no longer an objective.
The first part of this runs from 1760-1860 and therefore looks at the national events that were largely inspired and managed by governments, pursuing an often jingoistic desire to display their national capabilities, resources and ingenuity.
This is thus a background task that I am doing to get the data into the site in an interesting and organised manner. Bear with me, and don’t6 hesitate to comment if you have ideas of how it might be improved.
