True historians are interested in all history and cultures. Not selective ones.

I often see people wear the label of historian without the vaguest clue what it means. Not knowing that a true historian is interested in all of human history. 

True historians are as much interested in the Pre-Colombian tribal wars of modern day Peru as they are in the Battle of Hasting.  They aren’t selective or bias. They do not let their personal feelings, religious belief, nor opinions get in the way of what they record and whats to learn about the past.

They search for, read about anything dealing with humans and cultures of the past they can find and is always looking for that which no one is talking about.

Even those who specialized in a certain eras or cultures are as zestful about the other eras as those who have no specialty.

Anthropology and history or herstory goes together like love and marriage. You can’t have a love or zest for one without the other.

A true test if you’re dealing with a true historian is you will note their involvement in diversity of the human cultures.

Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    History today goes however whomever popular say it should. No one is interested in facts anymore. That’s what make your site interesting. You apply facts.

    A, that’s usually a sign of a person being racist as hell as to why they are only interested in one precise time and place in history. They aren’t historians. They’re just plain old racists.

    That’s true, real historians look for facts no matter who is presenting them and who the facts paint in a negative light.

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog WordPress was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    This is my first time to pay a visit to your site and I’m truly impressed to read someone who doesn’t agree with the revisionism of history. Usually, whatever the majority say is what everyone goes with rather the majority knows what they are talking about or not. 🙂

    I like to read about other cultures. It’s boring to read about the same culture over and over.
