Hi all!

I'm stargazer.  I'm especially interested in ancient history in particular Roman history and the ancient Near East. My days of wallowing around in the mud on archaeological sites are drawing to a close which partially explains why I now also look up to the Heavens rather than just down at the Earth! Have had a fairly good look around the forums ....looks like there are some interesting debates going on. Became somewhat confused with the issue of a 'rival' site but it was a rivetting read!

Hiya everyone.
 
I'm afraid I don't know that much about history, but I am interested in learning more. ;) I'm currently studying Politics and International Relations at Uni in the UK, however I'm originally from Sweden.
It seems like a very interesting forum, thanks for letting 'anyone' join :)
 
Take care now. =)

Hi
 
I am from Peru. History is everything in live. Is very important to know, to learn, to ask. I have worked in an airline for more than 10 years and every country I have visited I find very interesting to learn more about the culture and the history. My family is from Italy and from Croatia, so I love to know more about history . I also love dogs, specialy the working ones, the lgd.
 
So see you around  and thanks for the oportunity to share something we love.
 
...

Welcome to the house of history dear Dejavu.
It's always nice to have someone from South America as the Continent itself has so much of history so to get your shares would be great for the community and hope that you will too find and learn new things around.

@ Hugo
I guess you are also new to the forum so welcome to you and yes I am from Afghanistan and as you mentioned along with great land and people we also have some good Dogs too.
Like you mentioned the Sage Koochee which literaly means a Nomad Dog and is mostly used in Dog Fights and as house keepers while we also have the unique breed named Afghan Hound, these ones are mostly used as pets at homes but sometimes even they make the ring of fight and the wild ones really do great.

Thanks Gharanai, you are right I am also a new member here, I registered myself a few weeks ago but I have benn looking around for a while watching before talking. I hooe I will have the opportunity to visit your wonderful country in the future. I knew about the Afghan Hound (which is a sight hound, btw) as it is more common in America (and Europe) but I didn't know that it is also used as a fighter. But Sage Koochee (which is almost unknown here) is one of my favorites as I love Asian dogs, especially LGDs.
 
See you around

My name is Andrew, and I'm a 21-year old History and German student at the University of Iowa. I've lived in Iowa my whole life except for the year I spent abroad in Germany (Hamburg, Ostfriesland, and Saarland). I first became interested in history when I was about 8 or 9 years old and began reading about World War Two. Because of my German ancestry I'm most interested in German history, especially from the founding of the Prussian kingdom onwards. I'm also interested in military history and 20th century history.
In my free time I read, listen to music, browse the internet, and watch live or televised sports. I'm also an avid gun enthusiast and enjoy shooting sports very much.

Are you asking where I'm from or where does the name come from?

'Ziegenbart' is German for 'goatee' and 'Ami' is German slang for an American, so I'm the American with the goatee Tongue

hello all,/ howdy you-uns,
im a truck driver, currently parked across the indiana state line from chicago. this will change in a few hours but thisll be the last time i mention it.
i own hundreds of audiobooks in all genres. i love/ know a lot about chess, go, golf, languages, history, religions, and music(s), and a little about everything else. what i dont know, i usually know how to find.
just about anything you want to tell me about history i will gladly synthesize into my working model of how i think the world works. i dont promise to agree with anyone, or EVER use capital letters or correct punctuation. i do promise to offer insights i have on whatever subject, and to incite whatever verb from grins to the occasional knee-slap.

Welcome gruvawn! Smile 
 
Glad you took us up on that membership. If you want to open up the question regarding the "historical Jesus" on the forum again, feel free. I could be wrong -- which would be rather embarassing, as I'm the moderator of the forum it would have occurred in -- but I don't think it's been taken up on this forum before. I have my own intransigent views on the topic, as one would expect. Wink That said, if you would like to critique the somewhat... er... Eurocentric character of the e-book you picked out, that would be welcome as well. The only real rules on this forum are outlined in the Code of Conduct, and if you have a question, there are plenty of slothful mods like myself, just waiting to answer it. We might be lazy, but we're a bit better than the DMV (not a fair criticism at all, based on my past several experiences, but a familiar one, nonetheless). Anyway, looking forward to seeing you on the forum. Please glance at the CoC.

P.S. I loved Siddhartha; the book, not the guru. Although I would be willing to tolerate him in the form of a romantically fictional medieval monk named Joasaph. LOL

Greetings,

I decided to register an account here. It's been a long time since I've come to AE, I didn't know that it still existed. I'll see if I can contribute to the forum and I hope I can learn a few things here and there.

Oh, I'm a History student, by the way, among other useless things.

Cheers!

Thanks for your warm welcome! Certainly, history is not useless, quite the contrary. I said that in jest, meaning "useless" in terms of getting a job with it. Only time will tell.

Employment with a history degree a problem? I do not think so...placing aside those who use it as a stepping stone to Law School, history specialists at all levels swell the ranks of those in government service (e.g. State Department and yes the Defense and Commerce Departments) specially if they are language specialists in their regions of study.
