Return of the King

I have a May 30th 1660 style hangover today, which is tempered only by the glorious Tuscan countryside (see picture).

The 29th May 1660 is an important date in English history, a new King arrived from exile and the experiment with Republicanism died, never to be reborn. If you head over to the London Historians website you can read an article I wrote to celebrate this event and the partying that ensued. ‘The Return of the King’ can be found here:

Please also have a look around the other articles and the website. London Historians is a great club for those with an enthusiasm for history and in particular the history of London, you don’t need to be an historian to join.
