I am Mary W. Craig, a writer and historian. I am a former Carnegie scholar and a graduate of the University of Glasgow. I write about ordinary people and how they live their lives buffeted by the politics and economics of the elite.
Some historians are known as hedgehogs, happily snuffling about rooting out the minutest of historical details.
Others are known as eagles, soaring on high they see the great vistas of historical events.
A few are known as magpies: if something shiny and interesting catches their eye they will try to capture it where possible. I am a magpie.
