A Documentery Or Two
I love putting on a good history mini series while I'm working, especially ones from the BBC. I discovered this one hosted by Lucy Worsley a few months ago and was completely charmed. Lucy Worsley is the chief curator at Historic Royal Palaces, she has the best job and she makes the best shows! This series is about the history of various rooms in the home, but she has a bunch of others you can find, all mostly focusing on daily life and how regular people lived. I'm most fascinated by that view of history, and she presents it with such a sense of fun, you can really tell how much she loves what she does.
(If you like this you can definitely find more of her series on Youtube, they have magically not been removed yet!)
