Struggling to find an area of history in which to specialise? Finding your mind wandering to Byzantium while you’re reading about D-Day? Frustrating yourself with a seeming inability to focus your learning endeavours? Well, you’re in the right place. And what’s the problem?

Make yourself at home.

Steven Port would like to be able to call himself an historian, but feels a little unconfident. He also cannot find a focus for study because the thing about history is that there is a lot of it and it’s pretty much all interesting. He studied at Anglia Ruskin University and the University of Oxford, and is a contributor to Get History.
