History Carnival XLII Gets Rolling

History Carnival XLII, covering the history of life, the universe, and everything, has appeared at the Holocaust Controversies blog. I'm pleased to see Boston 1775's series on John Adams and the Boston Massacre case listed. However, it comes right after an Early Modern Whale entry about a "minor and belated Scottish demonologist, John Bell." Surely with that name he was a major, up-and-coming demonologist, no? Of particular interest is Progressive Historian's review of the Magna Charta.
