History club was formed out of many MNetters' seemingly insatiable appetite for historical debate, forensic analysis, ways of dying, pee and poo through the ages, dynamic despots, evidential disputes and stuff that goes on in caves.

MNHQ were asked to provide us with a Club. Thank you, MNHQ.

The rest, as they say, is hysteria ...

This is a lovely idea. Looking forward to seeing what comes up. Anyone watching 'The British'?

MonsterBookOfTysons Mon 17-Sep-12 22:48:58

This has got to be the best topic! Great idea grin

Great idea indeed. Thanks MNHQ.

Is this really a real new topic? Or is it Anglesey ?

<reserves 'Are you in Anglesey?' for future use>

My personal faves in the history of history on MN:

Ways of Dying in 1665

Archaeologists are DNA testing some bones they've found to see if they might be the remains of Richard III

Has anyone investigated their family tree and found anything interesting?

AIBUs your Grandma might have written

Anyone interested in book lending? This idea came up on the Sex in History thread.

The first rule of History Club is....

LineRunner Wed 26-Sep-12 20:20:22

...Talk about History Club?

mixedmamameansbusiness Thu 27-Sep-12 20:19:25

Delighted and can't wait to read all of the posts. Thank you MN and MNers.

LineRunner Thu 27-Sep-12 20:21:36

It seems to be going well so far, mixedmama.

mixedmamameansbusiness Thu 27-Sep-12 20:45:06

Long overdue.

Have just discovered this topic. Why didn't anyone tell me?

LineRunner Wed 03-Oct-12 20:11:11

It's great, isn't it?

I've been away for a week or so and really missed it.

Lots of ideas for threads.

Ilovemyteddy Wed 03-Oct-12 20:36:34

Yay! I only saw that History Club had been formed when I saw the Eric Hobsbawm thread in Active Convos.

<goes off to read threads>

LineRunner Wed 03-Oct-12 20:41:12

I'm glad you've found us - a lot of people here have really varied interests. It's a kind of learn and educate club, with wild speculation too!

SoggyMoggy Wed 03-Oct-12 20:42:36

I am ridiculously pleased to have tripped over this as well. grin

LineRunner Wed 03-Oct-12 23:05:39

Well keep posting and Justine will realise it was a fab decision to create it!

GsyPotatoPieEyed Wed 03-Oct-12 23:21:22

I already spend to much time lurking on MN. Finding this club will definitely not help grin
