About Us

The History Workroom LLP was founded by two avid history-lovers who want to share their passion with the wider community.

We believe history has to be accessible and interesting as it is accurate. It’s not just about the who’s who and the when and what. As much as history is about meticulous research, it is also about stories; it is about piecing together fragments of dates, people, places and objects into comprehensible and meaningful stories for present and future generations.
 
At THW, we believe  everyone and everything has a story to tell. For us, the thrill is in the search, the satisfaction in seeing the fragments come together as a whole, adding to the tapestry of life.
