Thumbs up Long Road

History and anthropology are my passions. I'm 68 years old. I've seen most of the world in my 21 years in the Air Force. During that time I managed to complete a degree in Logistic Management. I retired from the Air Force in 1968 and ran a successful business for 16 years. I have been married for 45 years to my high school sweetheart. We live in North Florida now. I have a passion to discover why we are who we are. History is the true story's of the human condition, fiction could not reproduce such a diverse and fascinating array of characters. Cardinal Richelieu, Theodora, the Empress from the brothel. Martin Luther. incredible lives in incredible times. I look forward to discussing and exploring the world's of yesterday with you.

Hello! My name is Miguel. I live in Venezuela, Iīm 43 years old and I am passionate about History. For a long time, it was for me almost solely Ancient Greece and Second World War, now I have derived a little to the Byzantine Empire... and try to give its deserved relevancy to any other period-civilization.

I hope I will have a terrific time here with you people, I have read a little of the forum and I have seen many interesting discussions and points... Oh, a good argument! One where information and reasoning are the most important elements! One of the tihngs that makes me the most happy in this world.

Greetings all new users, as much as all long-time members. The forum kindly prompted me to access the site, which I now do so having since found my log in details! Maybe best to let the site remember it. Note Mr Donald Trump is a fellow Presbyterian which I can relate to as a lapsed adherent. Me about 20 % Scottish and 25 % German, in the mix with remaining parts being Irish, English and French. Well, no body is perfect, like the Donald. But 100 % Australian. Got my MA (Military History) after seven years part-time study so looking forward to graduating next month, completing a book half-way through (a diplomatic biography) and planning future studies. And NZ. Now have more time to follow the items here. Daughter 32 today - sharing same date as Prince Charles at 68. Equal congratulations to HRH the POW too.

Greetings all new and old users on the day of love as Cupid wings his arrows at us all. NZ was nicer the second time as I got to see more of the south island and the fiords. I found time to finish reading "Blood and Sand", an account of the Suez Canal and the Hungarian Revolution. By Alex Von Tunzelmann. There is another book out "1956" which also confirms that the year was both eventful and calamitous. The eco-ranger on board the ship on the PA system, in the big Kiwi sounds, was a Mr John Von Tunzelman (sic). Curious, I asked him if he was related to her. He smiled and admitted that she was a fond second cousin. Been to Korea, fine people, the Irish of the East. Had to laugh at the sign at ROK Kimpo air port. "Welcome to Korea, the land of the morning clam (sic)" Their English is better than my Korean so meant to be calm not clam. Fern Landers love sea food - mussels too. They would have Kiwi salmon also?

I'm Rodrigo Vaamonde, 25 years old at the moment of this post, from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I'm a History and Geography student at UNED University (Spain's national distance learning university). I don't like the way universities teach history here, so I had to choose an online one. Luckily it turned to be a very good one, and I enjoy it a lot!

I make money as a programmer though, but I want to leave as soon as I can to another place like Europe or the north of Africa, and start working something related to my studies.

I've been managing one of the biggest medieval recreationist team in Argentina (or at least the most serious one), teaching how to craft different items from medieval life, medieval fencing (fiore dei liberi, talhoffer, etc.) and giving speeches about medieval history in different places.

Although, I like a lot of periods in history, not just medieval times.

I'm atheist, but I respect all religions, and in fact, I'm very interested to learn about them.

I'm joining this group in order to meet people who also loves history and with whom I can exchange knowledge. Also I want to improve my english, and I find this, a great way to do it!

Writing non-fiction "English Genocide in Nova Scotia"

I've discovered some work here and looking for more. In particular, papers on English genocide as colonists. Of course, Canadian is key.

I'm a recent Poli Sci graduate, UBC senior's program, and wrote one book on English colonization in New England and eastern Canada. The significance of this is the crown's consistent denial of any responsibility and adamant refusal to even apologize for the brutal invasion and removal of both the Aboriginals, the Mi'kmaq, and the next settlers, the Acadians.

I'd be delighted to hear from others interested and/or working in this field.
