"Professor Johnston often said that if you didn’t know history, you didn’t know anything. You were a leaf that didn’t know it was part of a tree." -Michael Crichton, Timeline
“If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday. ” -Pearl Buck
History is about knowing what came before. It’s about what led to the here and now, and appreciating that path. It’s interesting, and sometimes it’s just plain weird. But it’s all part of our collective past as human beings. This blog focuses on the European aspect of all of this, because that’s what the creators of this blog know the most about. Frankly, we just like Europe.
FuckYeahEuropeanHistory celebrates the awesomeness of European History.
The two admins of this blog are Elizabeth and Nirmali, self-proclaimed nerds. Especially when it comes to European history. No shame here, folks.
Elizabeth is a Homo sapien who likes knowledge, history, languages, traveling, books, horses, cats, music, Harry Potter, random BBC shows, antiques, and tea. She enjoys the fact that she shares her name with a bunch of significant rulers.
Nirmali is also a Homo Sapien who likes languages, traveling, books, music, tea, coffee, and music. Did she mention music? She has a love of musical theater and theater itself.
