About

We specialise in sourcing, writing and bringing together historical content in print, video, pictures and audio.

The really interesting gems of your history are probably hidden in a library or archive – and won’t appear in a Google search top ten.  We can bring them alive for you on the web.

Founder Chris Holme wrote and edited the first web-based history of the NHS in Scotland and knows where all the bodies are buried at St Andrew’s House having led the project for its digital history.

Holme is an honours history graduate of Manchester University and worked as a journalist in Yorkshire, Aberdeen and for the Glasgow Herald before heading to government where he was principal media advisor to various Scottish ministers.
