Lady Mary Wortley Montagu was a lover of the foreign. She represents our website as an emblem of all that became possible during the 18th century. She was an independent woman who began to travel alongside her husband, seeking out the exotic wonders she had only heard about. She became interested in all aspects of the foreign places her journeys led her to and attempted to bring their rich culture back to England. It is with this spirit of adventure, and need for the thrill of the unknown, that this website was created.
