Lets ask eachother some questions just for fun.
New question is asked by whoever answers the last question first and of course correctly. If you are insecure of your answer wait for confirmation from the person who asked the question before asking the new question.
Do not ask questions that require an essay to answer.
Ask for a person, a year, a specific event and so on. At tops a few sentences should be enough to give a correct answer to your question.
Also do not ask things so specialized that it will be impossible to find an answer. For instance if you have written a historypaper about something from your homevillage where the sources are only available at a special place or so, do not ask questions about such things.
Allright, I will preserve the right to ask the first question myself:
I am looking for the author of a famous mid 17th century diary/journal. The author lived in London. Described the fire of London and many other historical events. The diary though is maybe most famous for explicit information about everyday life and also contains some content not appropriate for children He was an important figure in the creation of the strong british navy. For some time he was under the protection of his patron, the earl of Sandwich, who helped our author with his career and of course he served his patron with hard work and loyalty (for some time at least).
Well, I dont think more clues are needed and if they are I will provide them.
Who is the author??
