“The biggest challenge facing the great teachers and communicators of history is not to teach history itself, nor even the lessons of history, but why history matters. How to ignite the first spark of the will o’the wisp, the Jack o’lantern, the ignis fatuus beloved of poets, which lights up one source of history and then another, zigzagging across the marsh, connecting and linking and writing bright words across the dark face of the present. There’s no phrase I can come up that will encapsulate in a winning sound-bite why history matters. We know that history matters, we know that it is thrilling, absorbing, fascinating, delightful and infuriating, that it is life.” – Stephen Fry
In a world where information is bombarding people daily and every piece of human knowledge is in your pocket just a simple keyword search, voice search, or tweet away; it can be incredibly difficult to get anyone to pay attention to the importance of history.
We feel it is our duty to make sure history is learned in this new age and that the mistakes made by mankind in the past are not repeated. To do this we take an unconventional approach to public education bringing modern forms of entertainment along with factual information and bits on why that information is important.
