About Harold Rex…

Welcome to Harold Rex Interminabilis Est… 

 

What is Harold Rex?  It is a magazine-blog principally, though not exclusively, about historical anniversaries, and taking a sideways look at them. 

 

Why is Harold Rex?  The past is all around us, and we are all its products.  The important thing to remember is that it is our tutor, not our jailer: we are students of history, not its prisoners.  To this end, it is worth thinking about what happened On This Day Yesterday, and taking a sideways look at the events – because only by taking a sideways look at the past can we look ahead and behind without hurting our necks too much…

 

When is Harold Rex?  As befitting an anniversary-themed site, Harold Rex will produce a new article on an anniversary most days.  Some of these anniversaries are well known, others less so, but all of them have in common the fact that they are interesting and merit being remembered. 

 

How is Harold Rex?  At the end of each article, there will be an opportunity to comment on, debate, and discuss, the article’s subject.  Please note: this is a civilised forum, and so comments that are abusive, defamatory, or bigoted will not be tolerated.  To quote the motto of a fellow blogger, play the ball and not the man…
