This site is dedicated to the men and events of the British Empire 1860-1913. This was the Empire at its most dynamic…Extending the borders across the globe. It was a time of the Great game in Asia and the scramble for Africa and British explorers entered the dark interior of Africa.
I’m looking to post blog posts, pictures, news items and book reviews. If anyone would like to contribute articles, book reviews or pictures please drop me an Email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The title of this blog is taken from a 19th century Farsi saying. Anywhere in the world, where a leaf moves, underneath you will find an Englishman.
This is also the title of a great book that I will be reviewing shortly.
Hope you enjoy the site.
