I usually describe myself as a ‘cultural’ historian, an adjective that raised eyebrows when I joined the History Faculty in Cambridge in 1979, but became normal and even fashionable by the 1990s.
Historical geography may be defined most simply as the study of the geography of places in the past. While it would appear to be relatively easy to differentiate between the ‘past’ and the ‘present’, there is room for some debate about when the ‘present’ ends and the ‘past’ begins.
