""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.

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)

I think it is interesting to see these things up close and live, but they often give people a wrong impression. It's simple, unless everything smells like shit all the time, it's not an acurate reenactment.

Why study history? Is there any pragmatic or utilitarian reason to care about history? Or is history merely an aesthetic/romantic appreciation?

Really? Too bad I got a C in my History GCSE (got an E in year 10 because I didn't give a shit then) , I'd choose it for my A level; alas, the entry requirements for History is a B.

Do you think taking English Literature and Language (one course) would give me similar skills? I'm also taking RE. I don't know whether to take Maths as well and actually study for it or just listen to my mum and pick an easy A level like Politics (although I don't have a passion for it and my opinion of the A level itself and of the topic is negative.) I do find the logical problems of maths immensely satisfying and I'm very interested in history so I'll keep on reading about it. But I do slightly worry that without a structure, I won't be as educated in any topic as I would if I took a course on it and I wouldn't have gained any of the essay skills I would have otherwise.

Sorry if my response is wordy or full of grammatical errors. I haven't bothered since this is the internet.

Studying history is escapism. A retreat to the past where mere scribbles are now important through sheer antiquity.

The truth is that almost nobody out of mankind ever amounts to anything significant and attempting to do so is both hard and dangerous. Better read about important people and their deeds to mask the insignificance of mankind as a whole.

Pretty much this. Try reading some of the ancient philosophers and you'll find out that they contemplate and address issues that we're dealing with right now, usually coming to conclusions that would be shunned by today's society due to liberal propaganda

Stumbled on this article:


>authors behind the myth of Irish slavery sought "to belittle the suffering visited on black slaves"

Sure sounds like somebody is butthurt those dirty dang Irish might intrude into the sacred victim space occupied by naggers. But who's right? Booke like White Cargo and They were white and they we're slaves or the article?

Even more ironic when you consider that "indentured servants" were often kept in similar conditions to actual slaves, kidnapped, bought,sold and could be whipped/punished in the same way

Well there's that whole bit about around 50% of the female settlers being Celts, and a good chunk of them were slaves. Also the Turkish Abductions, most of those were sold into slavery.

How deep do you want to go? It's fine in either case, I think.

Just don't act like an expert when all you've done is listen to a bunch of podcasts, or read a few books by popular historians.

607cb8 No.40812

Depends on which subject you want to study and what you want to learn from it.

607cb8 No.40814


You're better off reading secondary sources that have already analized the first-hand accounts.

Once you have a basic grasp on the time period you want to study you can go look for primary sources.

Keep in mind that depending on the period you want to learn about you may be forced to read paleography, indistuingishable gibberish for the untrained.
