Obadiah Short by Maya Howells

I joined the Common Lot because I’m really interested in history and I wanted to learn new things and meet some new people. Being a citizen researcher was a really incredible experience and I met some amazing people who were great characters and who shared lot of interesting information. I particularly enjoyed being part of a team made up of varied people of different ages.

Maya shared her research about Obadiah at our open meeting on 17 March.

I did my research on a man called Obadiah Short, focusing specifically on his childhood as he was a child in the Anglia Square area in the early 19th century

Here are some interesting facts I found out about his childhood.
