If you’re a history buff like me, you’ll love Absolute History’s Youtube channel! They offer fun and informative videos which present history in an entertaining way. Not only do they recount Britian’s history, covering the Tudor, Stuart, and Victorian eras, but much more. Including world history from the Ancient World, through the Middle Ages, and right into modern history.
So far my favorites have been the Full Steam Ahead series which investigates how and why the railways changed history and what it was like traveling and working them from their earliest days.
And Wartime Farm my absolute favorite, perhaps because I can more closely identify with that era. The actor/hosts Alex, Ruth, and Peter will take you through blackouts, rationing, food shortages women farm workers and spies, pigeon spies, and more.
If you’ve always seen history as a cold and boring subject, Absolute History could change your mind. These are not boring lectures or textbook discussions. But rather brought to life episodes, where history is actually enacted. Which help you the viewer to experience it (in a sense) first-hand!
So, history anyone? – Absolutely!!
