""We want to eventually have a resources sticky with links and suggestions of good books, podcasts, etc""

And yet here we are in the year 2015 without such a thing. Let's change this, /his/torians: post up your resources and books you've found invaluable in your quest for knowledge.

And don't be a dick about it: don't just link something random. Try and give a very brief review of it, indicate why it's good and who its target audience would be. Introductory stuff is always going to be welcome, but sometimes it can be hard to find where to go next, so help your brothers out.

That's all great. But how do I know where to start? I mean, I understand that one would rather gain an in-depth knowledge of one particular period, but I'd love some kind of digest/choronology of best works to read about a particular period, at least when to comes to the West.

You know, like the charts they have for philosophy. Is there such a thing yet? I don't feel like reading lots of different stuff about disconnected events, otherwise I fear I might lose the bigger picture.

1. Obey global rules

2. Keep things related to history and its study.

2a. History, for the purposes of this board, covers pre-History and all events up to the fall of the Soviet Union. Further than that and it's considered political discussion or discussion of modern events- take it to /pol/ or /b/.

3. If lewd images must be posted, do so on spoilers. Consider if it wouldn't be better posted elsewhere.

3-a. If you're in doubt whether it's lewd enough to spoiler, err on the side of caution and do it.

GUIDELINES- not quite rules, but good to follow for good posting

1. Check the catalog before posting to see if a thread may already be available for your discussion.

1a. Avoid making threads expecting people to just do your homework for you. Show some work yourself in starting the discussion instead of just "guys what was the main reason for the fall of Sebastianism in the 19th century"

2. Be prepared to present good sources for anything you claim, especially if you come here to posit opinions you know are controversial.

3. This being 8ch, we don't want to limit what you can post about. That said, we'd like posts to be of a good quality level, and related to history. If your post contains nothing more than >IMPLYING NIGGERS HAD A CULTURE, consider if you aren't better off in /pol/.

4. If you have any problem with the moderation here, or suggestions, please post them here instead of making a thread for it (not really historical-related) or making one in whatever board about 8ch discussion is being used nowadays (I don't even know!)

In other words, don't be a dumbass. This board works fine with a semi-absent BO and a bunch of mods who delete CP bots. Don't ruin it.

(want to post banners, do so here too)

Evaluate the following statements:

a) Until the 18th century, China had the richest culture of the world

b) Until the 18th century, China made the most accomplishments in terms of science and technology

c) Until the 18th century, China had the longest and most formidable history of all nations/societies

d) Until the 18th century, China was the protagonist of mankind, the pinnacle of human civilization

This is not homework in anyway, it's just that I often have arguments with friends about China vs Europe. They claim that Europe has given the world more and better culture, achievements and societies, but I think that was China. Yes, there are endless civil wars, famines, and foreign conflicts China lost, but I think China has always been the most culturally prosperous and advanced nation/society/etc, until the 18th century. Since then, China has been looted and dominated by barbarians (Europeans). But just as barbarians invaded and looted Rome, it doesn't mean barbarians are better than China. In recent decades, China has been growing very rapidly and the west has been declining, so I believe it will soon return to its rightful place as humanity's shining beacon, ahead of everyone else.

Please educate me and share your opinions upon China and this matter as a whole.

Although that guy was autistic and unecessary, you too don't have a point, as the Indo-European languages spread by the Indo-Europeans was done by people moving themselves, while the new world scenario was cultural transmission only.

No, it's not. If you exterminated the people who spoke Indo-European languages before they had a chance to migrate. Then there would be no Indo-European languages; ergo, they are related genetically. You can apply this to any language family.

But, yes, it can. Exceptions exist and should always be investigated, but on average, 5.5 can be the default assumption.

Yes, but he specifically mentioned the patrician "class" of Rome. I'm refuting that.

Also completely ignores that a large percentage of those "indentured servants" weren't criminals or people who willingly agreed, but children who were kidnapped off the streets or taken from orphanages against their will. It's actually where the term "kidnap" originated.

>1680s, compound of kid (n.) "child" and nap "snatch away," variant of nab; originally "steal children to provide servants and laborers in the American colonies."


In many cases they were actually treated worse since African slaves were extremely expensive and considered a status symbol, whilst "indentured servants" were a dime a dozen so they were often forced to work far more dangerous jobs.

well there's a country named Benin that's named after an old kangdom

but here's the thing, the old kangdom named Benin wasn't even there, and the actual kangs of Benin (they use the term "Oba" btw) still hold ceremonial role among the Edo community in Nigeria

similar thing happened with Ghana, there was a historical Ghana "Empire" (but fact is, Ghana was the kang's title; the state was called Wagadu) but again not where Ghana is now

The expense of natural of purple dye is well known. What were common dyes considered within reach of common people? No specific era in mind beyond pre-industrial revolution, though information on stuff from Asian countries is particularly desired.

I know the Alizarin/Madder dye used for British "Redcoats" was a relatively inexpensive dye from a common plant. What else?

IIRC Henna has also been used to dye cloth and leather, although it chiefly was used to imprint ornamental objects on the surface of either materials, rather than as a full-fledged dye.

>We show that Early Neolithic Moroccans are distinct from any other reported ancient individuals and possess an endemic element retained in present-day Maghrebi populations, indicating long-term genetic continuity in the region. Among ancient populations, early Neolithic Moroccans share affinities with Levantine Natufian hunter-gatherers (~9,000 BCE) and Pre-Pottery Neolithic farmers (~6,500 BCE). Late Neolithic (~3,000 BCE) Moroccan remains, in comparison, share an Iberian component of a prominent European-wide demic expansion, supporting theories of trans-Gibraltar gene flow. Finally, the Andalusian Early Neolithic samples share the same genetic composition as the Cardial Mediterranean Neolithic culture that reached Iberia ~5,500 BCE. The cultural and genetic similarities of the Iberian Neolithic cultures with that of North African Neolithic sites further reinforce the model of an Iberian intrusion into the Maghreb.

I need sources on what happened, not only during but the decades before. I already read a lot on it but the following matters mentioned I still have my doubts.

I'm interested in what happened during the Moscow State Conference, how it went and what was discussed, direct sources like diaries about it will be great

Description of the White Army side of the war, how they organized and if they were fractured in many particular sides fighting each other before the conference.

How the period of the revolution affected the private life of Russians and people living under Imperial rule. Descriptions.

And finally on the assassination of Alexander II: Why? How it was funded and planed?

I would like to read them but for now I'm not going to "enjoy it" that much.
