About the Author

CHRIS WILD, a former museum curator is a blogger and creator of Retronaut, a 'time machine' that allows people to access millions of pieces of historical content including videos, pictures, music and text from public and private archives. It is a passport into history where people can pick their own entry point (be it people, places or objects) and take a fascinating, inter-connected journey back in time.
