Where To Look For Lessons On History?

Whenever uncertain things happen in the world, some people try to look at the past because there are chances that it has happened before, letting scientists and officials know what to do. That is why people need to collect and protect history. Without it, society will doom itself to repeating the mistakes in the past.

Combining history and Instagram is not that exciting if you think about it. Why not just follow history-focused accounts, right? But Histagram is different. It has a wide collection of historical photos in its database, so expect something you haven’t seen before. There are also tongue-in-cheek captions and comments with the photos to make it seem someone shared them today.

If you like something different, BBC has something right up your alley. Their tagline “A History of the World in 100 Objects” delivers as you get a look at different objects from different ages, ranging from 2 billion years ago to 2010.
