What we're about

This group is designed for those who are looking for creative, interesting, multi-dimensional and fun experiences which explore the meaning and importance of the past. We each have our distinct experiences and understandings of just what history means to us and, through the events we participate in, hope to grow those experiences and build on those understandings. We recognize that history is complicated, encompassing not only cultural and social conflicts and upheavals, but technological and political developments as well. Never an easy concept to fully explain, it is very broad in its depth and breadth. Because of that, we believe in respecting and recognizing those who have differing viewpoints, that it enrichens our discussions and experiences, and refines our own intellectual growth in understanding history. That is one of the rewards of doing so. But most of all, we want to have fun exploring widely varied aspects of history with our friends while learning about the great richness of our historical past!
