Interests centre on Art, mostly European say 500–1850. See also User:Wiki CRUK John and User:Wiki at Royal Society John, my alternative accounts for edits made as Wikipedian in residence at Cancer Research UK (2014 - Feb 2015) and the Royal Society in London (2014). Also this blog on a project with the Metropolitan Museum Library, in New York, and this on one with the British Library.

I mostly write here; I don't do much pure editing. One day I will understand how and why to do a Non-breaking space, and after that maybe emdashes.

No social media in the 16th century. They had to make their own entertainment.
