Board: /his/

"/his/ - History & Humanities" is 4chan's board for discussing and debating history.

Welcome to /his/ - History & Humanities
Herodotus
This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

After the collapse of the Eastern Bloc, everyone thought we would have world peace forever, and that benign liberal democracy would spread everywhere and make everyone happy.

30 years later, Russia and NATO are on the brink of nuclear war and Communist China is the #1 world economy.

Reminder that Ottoman soldiers raped British Empire forces in WW1
Ottoman soldiers WW1
>After the surrender, the Ottomans forced the British POWs to embark upon a brutal "death march" to POW camps in Anatolia, during which the prisoners were forced to march under the scorching hot sun while being deprived of water, food and medical care while constantly being whipped by the Kurdish and Arab tribesmen the Ottoman state had hired to guard them; those who faltered on the "death march" were shot on the spot.[89][101] In the evening, the men on the death march were given biscuits to eat and water to drink. The only reason why the guards kept their charges alive was to rape them and during the course of the death march all of the POWs were repeatedly gang-raped

>After the British Army surrounded at Kut (in modern day Iraq), in April 1916, the survivors were sent on a death march of 500 miles with little food and even less medical care. Of the 2,592 British rank and file taken prisoner at Kut, more than 1,700 died (nearly 70%) died in captivity.

>According to the book 'Battle on the Tigris' by Ron Wilcox, Officers reported stories of 'young solders of the Hampshire and Norfolk [regiment] being repeatedly buggered by Turkish soldiers and sick men being buried by the road while still alive'.

>One Australian who after return from captivity in 1921 went on a mad spree in Launceston (Tasmania) which ended with his taking his own life with a pistol. When the inquest was held his former commanding officer came from Melbourne to give evidence ad stated that he had been "due to his youth and appearance, a particuar subject of foul abuses by certain Turkish guards."

Y-DNA
R1
Why do people choose to divide haplogroups the way they do? It seems like people just arbitrarily choose which subclades most closely fit the narrative that they are separate or distinct from those around them (when that's often actually the opposite of what Y-DNA data shows).
I'm thinking of, for example, why Western and Eastern Europeans obsess over splitting R1b and R1a, when they're both just ultimately subclades of R1.
Or why people obsess over splitting R1b-U106 and R1b-P312, when again they're ultimately both just subclades of R1b-L151.
Or why we bother with subclades at all when literally every living human male ultimately carries Y-DNA which is just a subclade of A.
Do these people not get that there are further subclades of arbitrary subclades like R1b-L21 and R1b-U106 etc., and that you can literally keep going further and further down the subclade tree until you're effectively on a clan-based or family-based level?
The more I study genetics and gain a greater insight into it, the more it seems like there are largescale, calculated campaigns to try and basically manipulate genetic data to conform to and fit a particular historical narrative which it often doesn't.
I see so much cherrypicking and misconstruing of genetic data that it is baffling.

>“[Gabinius, Roman governor of Syria] handed [the revenue-farmers] over as slaves to Jews and Syrians, themselves peoples born to be slaves.”
— On the Consular Provinces, Cicero (56 BC)

>“That hostile army was both larger in number and composed of a somewhat better grade of soldiers; there, as you know, were Macedonians and Thracians and Illyrians, all most warlike nations, here Syrians and Asiatic Greeks, the most worthless peoples among mankind and born for slavery.”

>“He [Emperor Severus Alexander] preferred it to be thought that he derived his descent from the Roman people, for he was ashamed at being called a Syrian”
— Historia Augusta, Author Disputed (4th Century AD)

— Manlius Acilius (191 BC, Quoted by Livy)
>“Come, tell me why it is that the Celts and the Germans are fierce, while the Hellenes and Romans are, generally speaking, inclined to political life and humane, though at the same time unyielding and warlike? Why the Egyptians are more intelligent and more given to crafts, and the Syrians unwarlike and effeminate, but at the same time intelligent, hot-tempered, vain and quick to learn? […].”
— Against The Galileans, Julian (361 to 363 AD)

>"First, the Syrians (Isaac 2004: 335–50): They were born for slavery according to the familiar formula (Cicero, de provinciis consularibus 2.5.10; Livy 35.49.8; Livy 36.17.4–5). The presumed qualities of the Syrians and other Asiatic peoples which earn them the description of having been born for slavery are: servility, effeminacy, perversity. Homosexuality, self-castration, perverted cults are all associated with this presumed lack of masculinity. They were no fighters, it was thought.

Over 200,000 French people lived in Spain during the 17th century
pepefroggie
>Historical research has only recently shown the extent (hitherto unknown)
of French emigration to the Iberian countries. It is proved by statistical surveys as well as by continued emphasis in travellers' accounts. Cardinal de Retz expressed extreme surprise in 1654 at hearing everyone in Saragossa (where there was a very great number of French artisans) speaking his language. Ten years later, Antoine de Brunel wondered at the amazing number of gavachos
>in Madrid; 40,000 he thought, who disguised themselves as Spaniards or claim that they are Walloons or from Lorraine or Franche-Comte to conceal the fact that they are French and to avoid being beaten up as such '
>The French supplied the Spanish capital with artisans, odd-job men and
retailers attracted by expectations of high salaries and profits. This was particularly true of masons and building workers. They also invaded the countryside: Spanish land would often have remained uncultivated without the peasant who came from France. These details indicate abundant, continuous and socially mixed emigration, an obvious sign of French overpopulation. Jean Herauld, lord of Gourville, states in his memoirs that there were 200,000 French in Spain (1669) - an enormous but by no means improbable figure.

Seriously the Vietnamese communists tortured our soldiers, murdered prisoners and humiliated us. When we normalized ties with these sobs in the 1990s a prerequisite should have been them apologizing to us and to apologize for them causing a refugee crisis. Now the good thing is these Vietnamese refugees are based and support America and conservative values but they are here because a communist government toppled south Vietnam a liberal democracy that stood by America. Since the current commie regime in power is illegitimate they should be forced to apologize for their crimes.

What role(s) did knights play in society.
1602694947696
They're well known for their soldiering, but beyond this what were they? Did they have a peacetime role?

Sometimes they seem to be sworn men-at-arms in the retinue of nobles.
Other times they are themselves a rank of lesser nobles.
Other times they are a class unto themselves, an intermediary between commoners and nobles, who rule small holdings but specialize in warfare.
Other times they are have no apparent geographic or political obligations, and function as members of religious organizations without anyone to whom they owe fealty (besides the organization itself).

At the same time, many or all of the functions attributed to knights are also performed by nobles and even sometimes clergymen, whether as men-at-arms or rulers of land.

I'm aware that the term "knight" could be used as a catchall to describe different things in different societies. But I'm not asking about those misnomers. I'm wondering what, if anything, was the defining role and nature of knighthood as a profession, distinct from nobles/nobility.


As an aside, I'm also wondering: what was the difference between the nobility and clergy, in terms of rights and obligations attached to land ownership and governance?

Russians have NEVER been good at war
They only won in WW2 because americans literally supplied them with so much equipment and supplies that it that the total amount of equipment tonnage was comparable to the western allied armies during all of the period of 1942-45. Any retard could win with such logistical support and the russian tactics only consisted of outnumbering germans 10:1 throwing human wave attacks in the meatgrinder until germans run out of bullets. Deep battle is a fucking meme and a cope invented by the soviets to justify the high casualties.
I'm glad the Ukrainian war exposed all of the tankie lies and destroyed the shitty revisionist history about how Red Army was this invincible unstoppable beast.

sadfrog looking at you
Religion bores me. I like reading about math, programming, and science because it engages your mind a bit to manipulate variables to solve a problem, even history, but every time I have to read some religious text or prayer my brain just shuts off, like "not this garbage again". It just doesn't make any logical sense. Some rare moments like Jesus's sermons on how to act have some value to them, but reading everything else like "praise God for the sake of praising God" and other such tautologies/claims without any proof is just pointless.

1200px-Lothar_I
Why did Lothair I., the oldest son of Emperor Louis the Pious of Francia, inherit the objectively shittiest part of Francia? It was so diverse it had no future, not to mention that it was mostly a thin strip of land sandwiched by two blobs of Francia Occidentalis and Francia Orientalis. It's even more ridiculous when you know that Lothair I. was fighting a rebellion with his brothers against his father and took part in the negotiations that ended up signing Treaty of Verdun. Sure he got Rome and Aachen, but strategically he was fucked (or his descendants were).
He wasn't a smart guy, was he?

>belief that the world is ruled by demonic reptiles who harvest our life energy to serve as their food source
>these reptilians operate under a number of fronts, including Judaism, Freemasonry, US Government, etc
>something involving Saturn, either as the deity of the reptilians, the gateway by which they enter our universe, or their home world.
>the ruling class performs human sacrifices to Moloch as a means to appease the Reptilians
>the belief that our reality as we know it is fake and trapped inside a black cube
>there might be good aliens who want to help us defeat the reptilians and ascend above this reality. They either look like feline-headed humanoids or Scandinavian elves.

Glory was their name. Good deeds was their game. They basically invented Western European High Medieval feudalism in the dark ages, with the stone castles surrounded by moats, boar hunts, wine-feasts, a heavy cav elite made up of liegemen, and peripathetic warrior kings. Still, they vanished without a trace. Why?

John Dunn - Setting the People Free
democracy
Hello everyone! My professor gave us this book by Dunn to study for our "history of political doctrines" exam.
Now, the Italian translation he gave us is poorly written, so that might be one of the reasonswhy I find this book very very confusing.

Can someone explain to me the key points of the book and the general idea/goal that Dunn wanted to express?

Resources with analysis, explanations, summaries would be great
