AskHistorians is a carefully moderated public history forum where the public asks questions, and where historians provide answers. Situated on the popular social media site Reddit, and bringing in over 1,500,000 monthly visitors from around the world, AskHistorians may be the largest public history forum on the internet. Its hundreds of historian panelists have a range of qualifications and topic areas - their real qualification on the subreddit being the ability to provide in-depth and comprehensive answers, and topic areas ranging from Ancient Greece to Zimbabwe - and its moderators provide a heavily moderated space which provides a pleasant, civil space for public history interactions.
