How did we get here?


Recently I looked back over my web search history during the time I spent redrafting Blood Witness. Aaah, the old rabbit hole of online research... It can be as simple as looking up a new synonym for a repeated word and the next thing I know I'm on a medieval cheese forum. More often than not I'm scratching some obsessive fact itch. But occasionally some interesting things come up:

The growth of bank notes over gold coins contributed to the decline of highwaymen.

Asphalt can be naturally occurring as in the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles.

Catholic Canon Law is still taught at over 37 Universities around the world.

There were female bushrangers.
