Welcome to Yesterday Enchanting Today!

IMG_4974 (Edited) (2)My name is Melissa and thank you for reading my blog. I am a modern mum and avid history lover, currently completing a Graduate Diploma in History at the University of Western Australia in Perth. My focus is on European Medieval and Early Modern women as I am fascinated with the way they lived, the way they were perceived as females and their ‘expected’ role as time periods changed.

As a mum I am always looking for new things to cook so in addition to my historical posts I have indulged my culinary love by including noteworthy cooks and recipes of times gone by.

I include references for my historical feeds if you find the topic of interest and would like to do further research yourself and if you would like to contribute to my blog either as a guest author or through sharing your thoughts or comments please get in touch – I would love to hear from you!
