100 places that changed the world

Here’s a new idea rather than a new, fully formed initiative – putting it out there to see if people would find it interesting.

There are hundreds of places and sites around the world that have an amazing story to tell – from the Trinity site in the Nevada desert where the first atomic bomb was exploded in 1945 to the Chicxulub crater   underneath the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico that is believed to be the impact site of the asteroid that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs.

I think telling the stories of what happened at these places is a fascinating and different way of exploring events and ideas in history, and would make a great book, blog and/or podcast series. Before I go to the work of starting to put something together it would be great to hear if it was of interest to people – please drop me a line on the contact email address on this site to let me know!

Thanks and all the best, Richard
