""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)

Imho this actually makes sense if only to describe that the heavily forested regions of central Europe would have been a pain in the ass to fight in for an army whose chief factor of dominance was mobility.

Kind of like Chariots were awfully inconvenient as weapons of war in hilly or mountainous terrain.

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?

No, and the American settlers invented slavery, too.

And to think with your head?

That was business of all those Vikings. Cabbage isn't much of a loot, after all.

Of course, they didn't need all that much loot and slaves. They also weren't much of merchants, and a common result of their Fun'n'Profit activities was that most other people used to either run or shoot on sight, so they needed some sort of a middleman.

And at this point I refer you to "Infelix Aurum" by St. Adalbert of Prague.


Same pedowikia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Church_and_slavery):

> Over 10% of England’s population entered in the Domesday Book in 1086 were slaves,[63] a far higher figure than in France at the same date. Paradoxically, church bodies remained slave-owners as church leaders fought new enslavement and the slave-trade.

Also, pedowikia has this picture (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gniezno_Boleslaus_II.jpg) - with correct description:

>Gniezno Cathedral Door - detail. Saint Adalbert of Prague pleads with Boleslaus II, Duke of Bohemia, for the release of Christians slaves by their masters, Jewish merchants.

but in the article on St. Adalbert himself it's being less than straight and transparent on this little issue.

If hitler idolized anybody, it was Mussolini for bringing fascism into Italy successfully.

How do you think the course of English/European history would have changed in the Anglo-Saxons had managed to defeat the Normans and keep hold of England? For the sake of convenience, let's presume that any other attempted invasions by the Normans would have been defeated as well. Anglo-Saxons continued to rule themselves.

For one thing, the English language would be very different. Without Norman influence, English today would probably quite similar to Dutch, and to lesser extents, German and the Scandinavian languages. English speakers could apparently understand Dutch into the 1600s, and I'm guessing that that trend would have continued to this day.

Another major change is that English foreign policy would have been oriented towards Scandinavia, Germany, and the Low Countries (rather than France), at least until everyone tried to cross the Atlantic in the 16th century. English foreign policy before 1066 was primarily concerned with Scandinavian raiders (Vikings), and trade with the Low Countries (particularly wool).

England in this alternate timeline would probably have been more involved in the Hanseatic League, although this is purely conjecture.

Lastly, without the Wars of the Roses and the Tudors, it's entirely possible that England would have never been Protestant.
