Space Rituals

Departure Lounge (Press The Big Red Button?)

 

My ‘holiday brochure’ a thesis looking at the past as a mirror of the present ( a medieval present and its ideological uses of the past) is 18 months away from completion, I find.

Which is not unhelpful as it raises a more basic question. Why when confronting a 20th century historical question is my immediate response to contact an expert in early medieval social organisation?

I feel the need for some sub-orbital retrospection.

Embrace the fact that with this form of flight spectacular accidents do occur. How do I learn from these experiances?

What are the historical questions and issues here?
