Trebez searched: What is the region/period/area of history you feel the most knowledgeable about and which one would you like to learn more of?
I am most knowledgeable about Ancient Greece from about 500 to 400 BCE. I’m probably a little too fascinated by the Greco-Persian and Peloponnesian Wars, but those hundred years include the The Battle of Marathon, the Hot Gates, the Delian League, the Siege of Athens, and the Massacre of the Melians. It’s the age of Cleisthenes, Themistocles, Leonidas, Pindar, Pericles, Demosthenes, Cleon, Alcibiades, Antiphon, Peisander, Phrynichus, Lysander, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Herodotus, Eurpides, Heraclitus, Plato, Aristophanes, Socrates, Thucydides, Phidias, Hippocrates, and Democritus. You may have skipped a number of those names as unpronounceable rattlings, but to me they’re fascinating historical personalities that changed worlds, both theirs and ours. And the list of them is a magical chant to make stranger’s eyes glaze over.
I also have a pretty good grasp on Greek history from about 800 BCE to 150 CE, but not with the same fervor or surety.
I could say that I want to learn about every area of history, but that would be pretty cheap. I could use a more solid understanding of the history of the United States from World War I to modern day since this is where I live, but I would be more interested in the Mongols in the generations following Genghis Khan. For a famous conqueror, I know very little about the legacy he left behind.
I’m a very poor historian, if a covetous one: I want everything that the people around me show me a glimpse of.
