Welcome to Res Obscura!
This website brings you a variety of articles written in the style of a blog about an array of different topics! I found this site through the article Why Are There So Many 17th Century Paintings of Monkeys Getting Drunk? Which by the way is totally worth a read – it explores art and history from the 17th Century.
When you arrive at the site, you can simply scroll down the page and start reading the articles. Or you can scroll down the page some and use the menu on the right side of the page that lets you pick from the different tags applied to the articles to pick topics you might be interested in. A third option is to scroll to the bottom of the page and use the tag cloud to pick a topic to view.
These articles are often in-depth with historical facts, obscure facts, and peppered throughout with images that illustrate whatever topic is being discussed. Go check it out for yourself today!
