Managed by Kathy Shinnick I’m a public historian who muses over how sports history is communicated in public spaces.
history in sport museums…
sports in history museums…
and everywhere else I discover it
Sports seem to have a reverberating effect throughout history. People often react to it in a very dramatic fashion.
Towns, individuals, organizations, and nations interpret it in their own unique way.
And that is what I talk about here.
Because sports may seem like all fun & games, but sometimes we are Playing For Keeps.
