SSM highlights episodes mentioned in little used primary sources and is designed to reflect my somewhat eclectic interests in the South Seas of the 18th and 19th centuries. Hopefully these posts will lend a bit of colour to our history. It is updated weekly (or thereabouts), along with comment for a bit of context. See links below for digitised primary sources. Opinions are not always my own - let alone related to, or made on behalf of, my employer. [I started this blog when I worked at the British Library as Curator for the Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Collections. It probably won't be updated much now].
