About

Hi, thanks for visiting the Patreon page for Insight History. 

My name is Steven and I live in Scotland.

I make videos dedicated to exploring the fascinating stories from history that matter yet that often go untold.


Although I have a particular interest in ancient civilisations, I make videos that highlight stories from a variety of time periods and geographical areas. If there is a story to be told, nothing else matters.

I have a first-class honours degree in Politics and International Relations from the University of Strathclyde. As part of my degree, I took many classes in history, journalism, creative writing and statistics, giving me a broad understanding of global affairs, both past and present.

In the 21st century, I believe that the documentary needs somewhat of a revamp. Given the pace of life in this century, I believe that many people struggle to find the time to sit down and watch an hour-long documentary. So, given this, Insight History will concentrate on making concise yet quality content, with the runtime for videos ranging between 2 and 15 minutes for the most part.

I will research each video by delving into the academic literature (to some degree anyway), predominantly using books and articles written by professors of history, classics or another pertinent subject, meaning that the narrative for each video will not be constructed by simply having a cursory scan of a Wikipedia page and then knocking up a narrative on a highly nuanced and complex topic.

By becoming a Patron, you will gain access to exclusive content and will help support the creation of all the videos Insight History produces.

In addition to the benefits stated for each membership tier, Patreon members will also get exclusive access to bonus content throughout the year, as well as early access to excerpts of certain video scripts. 


Check out the membership tiers to see which one suits you best to help SUPPORT the creation of more content...

THANKS for your SUPPORT!
