Let me ask you a question:

I am a history buff and love spending my spare time researching ancient Egyptian and ancient Judean history….

What part of history do you find intriguing?

  1. I love history. In fact, my son is a high-school history teacher so I get to learn all sorts of things. I love anything historical pre-1950’s. I love to learn non-west history and also fascinated with any kind of anthropological digs. Im intrigued by all of it. I just eat it up.

  2. I find the 1840’s – 1870’s in American history intriguing. I think it’s because of the big waves of immigration and the expansion into the central plains were so impacting. but that’s just me.

  3. I think I would have to say the Revolutionary war. I am a Daughter of the American Revolution, so that maybe part of it. But I also think that it has to do with national pride, which seems to be lacking right now. It is my prayer we can go back to our roots and be proud of our country.

      • For me, I really enjoy reading about the artistic developments especially within literature, theatre (Shakespeare!), and art (naturalistic painting came about at this time), and the shift from theology to “natural philosophy” – another name for science back then. This was also a time when culture and education turned more humanistic and individualistic, which is something I appreciate. I also like reading about the figures of that time – Galileo, Descartes, Bacon, and Michelangelo. I’m not sure what your interests are, but maybe you can pull something from these and run with it! šŸ™‚

  4. Roman history! šŸ˜I took Latin in Jr high or high school (its complicated because I skipped some grades so I don’t know what it was technically) and as part of that my Pastor taught of some Roman history. So interesting!!!

  5. History doesn’t interest me as much as ancient cultures. When you stop to think about it history is written, nations rise and fall by the invaders not the invaded. The cultures that fascinate me the most are the Celts, Greeks, Egyptians, Mayans, Incas, the Native Americans and the Mound Builders here in the US.

  6. The one about extremists, suppression, intolerance and hate. As it is repeating itself over and over again… If you want me to specify it: Hitler. But it was around before and it is back now and unfortunately again the world watches while it builds up…

  7. Hey Danny~ I am a big fan of studying Teddy Roosevelt era and military history in general. I also am fascinated by the Terra Cotta Warriors. I will be teaching a philosophies and religion course next year as well in addition to Psychology.
