This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts covered in the preceding chapters of this book. The book argues several key points that accrue around the following terms: experience, scepticism, enfranchisement, access, embodiment, variety, virtuality. It demonstrates the importance, imaginative complexity and historiographic scope of popular culture's interface with history. The historian as a figure has become increasingly high profile in culture and fiction and their authority has often been questioned. Certainly the academic historian has tended to be critiqued in popular culture, and regularly audiences and users have circumvented the expert and the direction of the professional in seeking their own personalised historical experience. The book illustrates the dynamic between the opening up of access either through the material enfranchisement of the user or in the ways that traditional forms have been articulated and the perpetuation of particular types of authority figure.
