"/his/ - History & Humanities" is 4chan's board for discussing and debating history.
Welcome to /his/ - History & HumanitiesThis 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.No titleIs greater access to goods worth losing agency at a familiar and communal level?American Settlement: One Wave or Many?Were there human migrations into the Americas before the supposed "Natives" filtered in through Alaska?

I just visited the American Museum of Natural history. It was severely disappointing, 75% of exhibits were random dioramas and the rest were just native american artifacts in cases. The Field Museum in Chicago was much more impressive, and the Oriental Institute in Chicago as well has a really great near eastern collection.

When the English invaded Ireland was not a United nation, so you can't even say Ulster was stolen from Ireland.
There's just really no rightful way for Ireland to have Ulster at this point.No titleHas there been moments in history where a entire army continued fighting after a defeat like the delaz fleet.

The mission of the imperial generals has always been clear, all patrician families must be stripped of their property and honors, and the treasures that were once stolen from the city of the worlds desire must be returned.
>As the time came for the descent of Byzantine armies upon the City of Water, things turned more hideous than anyone could have imagined. A lifetime of warfare does not foster kindness in anyone and with commanders eager to see the city burn, byzantine soldiers embarked on a several days long campaign of devastation and plunder of churches, palaces and even the V*netian arsenal.No title>Aryan = Ancient ethnonym for Indo-Iranian language speakers

If anything, it represents a model of a historically oppressed (Pale of Settlement, models) ethnic minority taking arms not to empower just themselves, but the country in general. The Romanovs were a Germanic dynasty forcibly dragging the East Slavic peoples into a pro-Serbian struggle against the Hohenzollerns. The Romanovs and their state represented the greatest threat to Ashkenazim Jews through the destruction of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The Jewish people didn't ask for their adopted Polish-Lithuanian homeland to be robbed from them by the Romanovs.
Why did the Romanovs imperialistically conquer Jewish communities in the first place and then have pro-Romanovs complaining about the natural and inevitable consequence?No title>Kiev EncirclementNo titleITT: hilarious stories about famous (or not so much) historical events/people.

I've never done a DNA test and while my skin is much lighter than Pakistanis i notice that my features in particular my facial features are very similar to a lot of Pakistanis i know and see. I have similar build/structure to them. My nose, hair texture, beard density, lips, mouth area, etc is very similar to how Pakistanis look. Even when i train in the gym and build my body, the muscle bellies and muscle development looks extremely similar to the Paki guys that i train with. There are clear similarities in the structure of my build and bones to the Pakis that don't exist in white men for example. My wrists are pretty much identical to most Pakis i see whereas European guys tend to have thicker wrists.
However, having said this, I have seen some Iranians and Pakistanis who look nothing alike. The Iranians looked more like Cypriots or Turks while the Pakistanis looked like dark Indians and Bangladeshis so i don't know whether i am just some outlier or what.
So what are the studies/research on this? How close are Iranians and Pakis in terms of their genetic makeup?No titleCan someone please redpill me on the Transnistria WarNo titleImagine a world where the Plantagenets won...No titleIs there any other time period that even comes close to being as beautiful and interesting as renaissance Italy?No title>watching documentary about the Knights Templar on YT >at one time look down in the comments >"Abstergo", "better call the Assassins", "where is Ezio"No title>The Bolsheviks and muh Stalin never supported homosexuality and wer-OH!No titleAre men expendable?No title>John, count of Armagnac fell in love with his younger sister, Isabelle.

The Pope refused. >Undeterred, the Count bribed a papal official, Antoine d'Alet, Bishop of Cambrai, to forge a papal bull allowing the marriage. A few months later, the Count and his sister had a third child together, a daughter. >Tried in absentia in 1460 before a parlement of Charles VII, he was convicted of lese-majeste, rebellion and incest. Forces were sent to capture him but he escaped punishment by fleeing to his cousins in Aragon.
