That History Nerd is creating a History Blog

That History Nerd is a blog dedicated to dusting out the forgotten corners of history, and bringing the interesting and unusual to light. We provide high quality, well researched articles that dive deeper into history than the average encyclopedia entry, (not that we're dissing encyclopedias!) and present complex people and events in an easy to understand, and entertaining narrative. At the moment, our main focuses are obscure incidences in history, and biographies of the overlooked extraordinary women. With your help, we can continue to explore world history on a more global and in-depth scale.

At this time That History Nerd is a small operation, and only able to put out two articles a week. Each article takes several hours of researching, writing, and editing to produce. We're proud of what we create, but we'd like to create more. Ideally, That History Nerd would be publishing exciting new content on a daily basis. We have a lot of interesting ideas for new features, including:

-watch-along guides to popular period dramas that go over the historical context of a story, and discusses anachronisms, and where narrative diverges from history.
-in-depth looks at broad topics like the Cold War, the Islamic Golden Age, and the Irish Troubles.
-reviews of documentaries and history books.
-biographies of overlooked and extraordinary men.
-interviews with people who have lived through the historical events of the not-so-distant 20th century.

Additionally, we're in the process of working on a compilation 'Damn, Girl' book, which goes further in depth on all the remarkable ladies we've already covered.

Your support helps us pay writers and editors for their work, access academic sources locked behind a paywall, host and improve our website,  and have primary sources in foreign languages professionally translated. In exchange for your support not only will you have continue to enjoy the That History Nerd website which is, and will always be, free, but you will also receive access to exclusive patron only posts, research notes containing facts and tidbits that didn't make it into the articles, field notes from historical sites, and monthly history lectures delivered by The Nerd. 

We thank you in advance, and hope to see you in our Patreon community!
