Welcome to Green Hare History

Do you want to know more about
British history?

We’re all about making history fun. Why? Because we love it.

Hi, I'm Samantha

From learning about Elizabeth Tudor from my nan to studying Medieval Studies at university, I love everything to do with the diverse and never-ending stories of our past. 

I am trained as a medievalist, but now I research and write about stories from every era. You’ll also notice that I love faces. Portraits are a huge passion of mine whether that be elaborate royal propaganda pieces or heart-breaking photographs of World War One casualties, and I use them as often as I can. The one thing I am a stickler for, however, is using original pictures where I can:  Victorian melodramatic images of medieval monarchs are banned!
