I'd imagine we all have a type of history we all sperg over, what's yours?

I like to historysperg over natural disasters. I'm listening to videos about the 1994 Northridge earthquake right now and thinking how amazing something that close to the city, yet so weak (compared to some of the stuff we've had in the past 25-ish years) could cause so much damage, same thing with the Loma Prieta earthquake.

I'm all over the place. I don't think I have a singular piece of history I sperg over. Weapons, maybe. I like reading about the evolution of something like the tommygun from concept to the final production variant.

Oh, and anything regarding the little we know about the Minoans and the Picts.

I used to sperg out over the US History as a kid, these days I serg out more over natural distastes, weather related stuff, and distastes in general such as The Station fire.

Much as I find recent human history interesting I'm more fascinated by long term processes such as the geological history of the Earth and the amazing way the surface of the planet is only static and unchanging by our extremely limited definition of those two things.

Oh, Medieval history all the way.

There's something just terribly interesting in it for me, and I wish I could find the words to describe why.. The Middle-Ages is simply in incredibly fascinating and colourful period for humanity.

Byzantine history is also equally fascinating, although it's harder to find as much information.

Colonial times. I still love the mystery of the Roanoke Colony just because it hasn't been solved and wont ever be.

The history of the Irish Republican and Loyalist armed groups is something I could sperg for hours on end for.
But also Irish History, Irish Mythology and Weapons history.
But seriously ask me about the history of something like the Official IRA, 'Irish People's Liberation Organisation (IPLO)' or even the 'Loyalist Volunteer Force (LVF)' and I'll keep you here for hours.

Any type of history, because I am a history freak.

Here is one for your natural disasters:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1958_Lituya_Bay_megatsunami
https://geology.com/records/biggest-tsunami.shtml

The force of the wave removed all trees and vegetation from elevations as high as 1720 feet (524 meters) above sea level. Millions of trees were uprooted and swept away by the wave. This is the highest wave that has ever been known.

New Testament. Whether you think any of it is true or not, the BIble is the most influential set of documents in the history of western civilization, so it's good to know how it came to be.
I was into Old Testament history for a good decade. That was interesting to see how sanitized the OT/Judaism is now compared to how it was historically.

Right now I am really into reading about historical world fairs and expositions. Specifically reading about architecture.

i'm not much of a sperg (at least when it comes to history), but i always found gunpowder warfare around the 17th-19th century to be fascinating

someone, somewhere, at sometime basically thought, "hey, you know what we should do? let's have everyone's armies line up and take turns firing at eachother"

...i'm simplifying things, of course

even so, it's still ridiculous to me that such a time period existed

Ancient anything ( but in particular Greece, Rome, and China ), Feudal Japan, and France. However I love consuming any kind of history, so i'm definitely not picky.

It seems silly by our modern comprehension of weapons and war but that really was the most effective way to make use of guns in that period of their development.

I used to get a hardy over WW1 and how fast moderization of weapons and the war tactics evolved.
But due to drugs and shit I forgot a lot of it and never cared to re-learn it.
