Pages missing from diary of Peter the Great's Scottish General

Scholars have announced that they believe several pages have been removed from the diary of Patrick Gordon, a Scot who held a senior rank in Peter The Great's army. They claim inconsistencies in the text suggest that up to a month's information may have been replaced by a series of paragraphs indicating the soldier was offered work in Vienna, only to be told shortly afterwards he was no longer required. The diary was published in full for the first time in the UK this year.

  1. Just found out about your podcast (through the Luscious Leftovers episode you were in) and I burned through the episodes in about three days. Just wanted to say that I'm loving the flow of it, and I'm eagerly awaiting the next episode. :-)

  2. Thanks for the feedback! It will take us a little longer than three days to get the rest of the story completed, I would imagine ;-)
