Studi Galileiani is hosting History Carnival VII and has a plethora of diverse, history-related blog posts to recommend. He also reminds us that the concept behind the original History Carnival is that the host should receive submissions, do a little digging themselves and then post the results. It looks as if S.G. had to do most of the digging this time. Hopefully the next Carnival will see more submissions (I'm working on one myself). In fact, I hope that by the time I host one, in a month or so, I won't have to do as much work as S.G. did!
