Welcome to History Worth Knowing! I created this blog to demonstrate that historical facts are not boring, but interesting and can be fascinating. I love ancient history. I have never understood why so many people turn a blind eye to history as they consider it old and “useless” when in fact it can by quite interesting. I think that many ideas that we consider as “modern” (such as sexuality) actually existed hundreds of years ago and actually influence us today. I have a friend who likes to discuss historical topics with me and is (always) amazed to learn about so many topics and ideas which are not quite so modern after all.
This blog will be about fun and interesting facts about history from the evolution of our species to the medieval period. I hope you enjoy it.
