About Us

Hi, my name is Catharina Botermans. I started this blog in May 2016 for it occured to me that while researching my novel a lot of great stories and information I found were just briefly mentioned or didn’t make it into the book at all. What a waste, for this historical period has so much more to tell us than Wikipedia suggests.

So, come take a trip with me through the Renaissance, the people, the food, the smells, the places to be and the stories to tell.
