    Which Historical Time Period Are You Most Interested In?

    I've always been interested in the British empire, and the industrial revolution, as well as the rise and fall of the Third Reich.

    What historical time period(s) are you, or were you interested in?

    Most of it. But, I do have a soft spot for anything pre-dating the industrial revolution.

    Hmm, well my interest is sort of scattered.. I'm mostly interested in the Bronze age through the Middle Ages. I'd say i know a good deal about most of Europe, the Roman Empire and the other Empires during this time, but my "speciality" revovles around Britain. My interest then halts at the start of the Renaissance period and picks back up again at the start of the Great War (ww1).

    The Early Middle Ages, with a focus on pre-Christian Scandinavia (and the Vikings) and Anglo-Saxon England.

    The early Middle Ages encompassing the Anglo-Saxon and Viking periods is one of the epochs that I am interested in as well. I'm also interested in the Thirty Years' War period in Germany and the English Civil War and Restoration periods in Britain and Ireland. The modern history of 20th-century Europe and Asia I find a fascinating subject as well.

    I've developed a fascination for the late middle ages, which were very turbulent times with innumerable conflicts to read about.

    It all started with the Battle of Hastings and I just followed events through from there, right up to the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.

    The fates of England & France were closely intertwined during this period, with French-speaking monarchs on the throne of England and places such as Normandy and Aquitaine being English possessions. It all takes some unravelling TBQH

    If only one historical time period, and the one I am most interested in... then definitely I would choose ancient times... There is much more about that... and unlimited period of time...

    Also some things we cannot know for sure, quite mysterious, like Hyperborea or Atlantis... these can also fit into ancient times, don't they?

    But even without those two... I was always fascinated by the Geto-Dacian history... and my fascination for history ended at the Daco-Roman wars, when Decebal was defeated by Trajan... and then the lie that this is how Romanian people were born... such a lie... I never believed that... so after that I wasn't interested in history anymore... I realized how easy is to write history as you want to write it...

    Later, after several years I realized how right I was about such things... seeing how they change history books for children in school... how they manipulate children with that... instead of teaching them the real thing...

    History can be used for manipulation a lot...

    However... a quote I really like about history:

    Quote Originally Posted by Adolf Hitler
    Few teachers understand that the aim of studying history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this or that battle was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant.

    To ‘learn’ history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.

    The art of reading as of learning is this: to retain the essential to forget the non-essential.

    Mein Kampf
    Well, this is another reason why I didn't like history in school...

    My passion for history ended together with the ancient times... Many years later I discovered on my own about the Vikings... and then this became another part of the history that I loved so much...

    The Geto-Dacians and the Vikings... personally I found so many similarities about them... they both got my heart... The Geto-Dacians were the bravest and the righteous of the Thracian tribes... and in my opinion so were the Vikings... and if indeed the Scandinavians came from ancient Dacia, then this makes a lot of sense... the same people being the bravest ones...

    Later I discovered the Third Reich... another part of history which got my interest... and many things related to these times of history, in different countries around the globe, also in Romania (of course)... Many things in history happen in the same time in different parts of the world, in unison... having the local specific... The legionary movement in Romania had its own specific... but the Third Reich... there are many things hidden about that, of course... many things we don't know...

    But history taught in schools sucks... I rarely liked history in school... I was making fun of it... seriously... Such big lies they tell in history books... changing them according to who's the ruler... Seriously, how to believe a word from these history books?

    Better to read between the lines and only learn the lessons... and if interested in more, find more reliable sources on that...
    Die Farben duften frisch und grün... Lieblich haucht der Wind um mich.
