Hi, and welcome to the History Cooperative! We’re just a group of people who all have a passion for history. But more than that, we all have a passion for sharing history!

It doesn’t matter whether it’s the history of a piece of technology, a food dish, a piece of clothing, a style of music, it could be anything! We all just love to know where things came from and how they became the way they are.

After sharing lots of ideas and interesting tid-bits of information over a forum for a few years, we decided it was time for us to all start our own website! And what a journey that’s been…

Jenny was the only one of us who’d even looked in the backend (haha) of a website before so we’ve all been learning quite a lot (please excuse any mistakes you see on the site).

It might take us a little longer to get all the great pieces of writing we’ve done up on the website but rest assured, we’re working hard on it.

If there’s anything you’d like to know the history of, please just let us know on our contact page (that’s a link you can click).

Thanks for visiting!

P.S. That’s a photo of us from one of our very few get togethers. Spot the difficult one… Nice orange hat Gary!!

P.P.S. It looks like I managed to flip the photo! Opps. Does anyone know how to change it back? I’m not good with these computer things…
