        About The Fake History Hunter

        I've been a historical consultant who works for film, tv, authors and museums, mostly as a researcher for decades, I've also worked as an image analyser for several institutions, examining film and photo footage to see if something stands out, details that aren't quite right.
        I also have archaeological, living history and educational interaction with public at museums experience.
        With other words, history has been the main passion, hobby and job in my life for as long as I can remember.
        As you can imagine seeing 'fake history' being shared online annoys and frustrates me.
        Images are being shared by thousands with incorrect or even made up descriptions, creating myths that sometimes start to lead their own lives, that become accepted as facts by millions.
        That's why I started my fight against 'Fake History'.
        Whenever I see something online that I don't trust, I start an investigation, spend many hours researching the image or story to try and get to the bottom of it and if I find out something isn't right, I publish my findings online and start sharing it with everyone who keeps sharing the fake story/image.
        I feel that the only way to combat false information is by throwing sharp pointy facts at them and hope that others do the same so we can eventually drown out the fake story.
        This isn't easy as there are so many accounts on social media that make a living sharing their historical stories and images only to get as many clicks as possible so they can make money luring people to their website or other websites with advertising.
        Nevertheless I keep fighting, even though it has almost become a day job now.
        Luckily I am not alone, there are many others who fight fake news and images, but as far as I know I'm one of the few who purely concentrates on history.

        Follow me on social media and my website to see the fake history I uncover and perhaps join me in the hunt.
