Queen Victoria’s journals

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the role played by journals in creativity and innovation.  I’ll post more on this later when I have time to write.  This week I’m in the middle of final exams and closing out the academic year.

 But this morning my Twitter feed contained this intriguing news: to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth has made available online the journals kept by her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria, the only other British monarch to celebrate a similar anniversary.  The archive site is filled not only with photographed pages of the Queen’s actual diaries but also with commentary essays by various experts and a timeline containing notable events that occurred during her reign.

 Fascinating reading!
