WELCOME TO ASKHISTORIANS
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, AskHistorians brings in over 1.5 million monthly visitors from around the world. As a result, AskHistorians may be the largest public history forum on the internet. While our moderators provide a heavily regulated and supervised space for the public to interact with professional and grassroots historians, the hundreds of historian panelists who contribute to AskHistorians boast a range of qualifications and topic areas. These range from independent study to doctoral degrees and from Ancient Greece to post-colonial Zimbabwe. Our experts' most important qualification, however, is their ability to provide in-depth and comprehensive answers in a civil, engaging, and easily digestible manner.
