Keeping the past present

Like many history graduates, I’ve retained my passion for the discipline even if I’m not working in the field. History Today is an ideal way to keep that passion fed. I particularly enjoy its breadth and variety, even as it shows up how woefully limited in chronology and geography was my own formal study of the subject!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your kind words Darioboh, we pride ourselves on our global reach.

Back to history

I first read HT nearly 40 years ago on the recommendation of a teacher and enjoyed its different take on history compared to our text books. After a long break it’s great to see that the plurality of voices, topics and debates are as strong now as then. Thank goodness.
