Welcome to The Phoenix Files!

This blog is a collection of papers and how-to articles I have written, as well as my travel journals and general announcements. Scholarly works from "The Library" on my old website, are labeled here as "Historica Tractatu."

Walking Around History

Posted by Heather Daveno, History Seeker on 9/3/2016
The more I walk around, the more art and history I find ...
