71 is the number of an apartment where we stay regularly in Whinfell Forest, Cumbria. We like it there.
‘We’ are Anna French and Dan Hartland. Anna has an MA in Museum and Heritage Studies and a PhD in History, and lectures in early modern history at the University of Liverpool – this may be why she posts here less these days. Dan, meanwhile, is a self-employed writer and musician with a particular specialism in the interweb, science fiction and alt.country.
‘The Story and the Truth’ is an inadequate catch-all term for what we do here, which is mostly talk about whatever interests and inspires us. That usually includes, for Dan, literature, history, music, film and politics, and for Anna retro and vintage fashion, history, nostalgia, travel, art, cookery, animals and photography.
