I am Sarah Anderson. I write about old things – mostly those in Edinburgh, UK (AKA ‘Auld Reekie’) – dating from the last couple of centuries. My subject matter is usually the personal and seemingly trivial.
I used to earn my living helping academics get funding; I now work for the Beltane Public Engagement Network. I once did research as a doctoral student in English language; the dedicated can read my PhD thesis.
When I’m not working, I blog and go around Edinburgh’s second-hand shops. I have a weakness for rescue cats but, in spite of the cat thing, I am actually married.
