Bringing the past to present times

Bio: I have an interest in history and also creating websites. I decided to combine those interests together, and created a number of websites with historical content over the years. The website were created using HTML and CSS. More recently, I have created and designed from scratch the 'Horizon' WordPress Theme. Surprisingly the theme is designed for history based websites. The journey continues, developing the theme, and improving on SEO.
