Brick to the Past is a group of British LEGO artists who recreate historical scenes in LEGO. Their website showcases their biggest projects, massive displays like the Battle of Hastings in 1066 pictured above. Their Twitter and Instagram feeds have a “this of in history” theme in which you’ll see closeup views of historical recreations rendered in LEGO bricks and minifigs, posted almost every day.
On this day in 1688 the extremely successful Welsh buccaneer, plantation owner, & later, Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica, Henry Morgan, died. He became the inspiration for many pirate-themed works of fiction & mascot for mediocre tasting rum.
