Amateur Historians

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic, see this page.

History is not only a discipline to be carried out in formal academic circles. It is a discipline widely relevant to every day life and interesting to people of all sorts of different vocations. This group is people who love history, not as a course of formal study or as a career, but as a matter of self-education.
