    Default Links to History

    Listing of Historical Links by Category
    Original Thread

    Ever had Problems when trying to find some good sites about a special period in history on Google?
    I know that looking on Google or other search sites for something can sometime become pretty irritating (especially after you have been doing it for 2 hours)
    So I decided to make this Topic, where everyone can share links to good/resourceful history sites that they know of, making it easier for people searching for information to actually find some. (And if you are looking for one, just ask here)

    But there are some rules:
    1. Do not post links to things on Wikipedia or other sites similar to it, you can post link to the actual site (ex;www.Wikipedia.com) but not something on the site (people can use the search feature there themselves).

    2. Before posting, check if the link that you are about to post is already here, I/mods will edit all links into this post in chronological order so it should not be too hard too see if it is already here.

    3. Also, before posting a URL, be sure that it is good/resourceful site (witch information you can trust).

    4. If possible, write a very short description/word about the sites content (ec; Hannibal, Roman Military System)

    5. All sites should be in English, but possible exception can be taken.
    (If you are going to post a site about something, for example Hitler and you see that there is already a site about Hitler posted here, you can still post it, as long as it is not the same site.)

    6. If you find a link that doesn't work then please report it to me. (I will rep people who report dead links)


    AND REMEMBER!, when writing something about "something", always compare text on a web page with other ones.

    Thanks to Marduk Of Babylon, Last Roman and RexNecros for new links.

    It seem that I can't keep my orginal promise to add 2 new links each day. (I was pretty naive)
    So instead I will add now and then, when I find something intersting.

    *Divided Romans into Culture and Military

    *Added a link to HoI2 Wiki Knowledge site under WW2.
