We’re coming up on 100 years since Armistice Day, the end of World War I, and here’s what’s going on in the world:

- The WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City is holding an Armistice Commemoration;

- The Tower of London is lit up with 10,000 torches as part of a week-long remembrance ceremony;

- Many war photos have been colorized by Tom Marshall and others (they have a Facebook page with more details);

- and, in Germany, it’s understandably a pretty subdued scene. 

If you like your history older than a hundred years, fear not! The Public Medievalist is doing a special series on gender and sexism during the Middle Ages! (Paging Cassandra…)
