History Crunch in 2022!
It's been quite a while since we last posted, but it's because we've been so hard at work creating content for the website! Also, like many other businesses, the Covid-19 pandemic slowed some of our progress. However, rest assured, we are hard at work on improving the website and adding even more learning tools for teachers and learners.
For instance, we've developed dozens of new articles and infographics. This is most notable in our World War I section. Check it out!
We've also begun to develop short videos to help teachers and learners make sense of complicated topics. These videos can be found on the individual articles, or on our new YouTube Channel. Let us know what you think!
Going forward, we are working hard on developing more articles, infographics and videos. We're also currently working to add citation information to all of our articles, which has been a highly requested feature!
Continue to reach out to us, if you have requests or questions. Our team will do their best to get back to you as soon as possible. We're continually amazed at the support we receive from all of you! Thank you!

I am the director of the Stanhill Village Heritage Project based in the village where Hargreaves lived and worked. I need to point out some inaccuracies in your description of James Hargreaves and the Spinning Jenny. Arkwright did not develop the water frame until five years after the invention of the Spinning Jenny i.e. as an improvement on its design. Also, Hargreaves did not sell the machine directly to local mills. The mills were built later to accommodate Spinning Jennies that were considerably bigger than the eight loom version developed by Hargreaves. Finally there is no portrait of Hargreaves and certainly not a photograph (!) of the hairy, unkempt person shown in your article. Photography was not invented for over 50 years after Hargreaves’s death in 1787 and Hargreaves in any case would have been shaven as the businessman he became (he owned a mill in Nottingham) would have required. You may find the video prepared by us on YouTube helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=an4hi0knlaA
