History Porn

I’ve blogged about reddit before, specifically the wonderful reddit.com/r/askhistorians which is replete with interesting conversations and sound advice, so much so that I will often point my upper sixth coursework or IB Extended Essay students there to get an understanding of historical debate. But there is much more to reddit than just geeky historian texts, there’s also geeky historian pictures. Most notably on the unfortunately name reddit.com/r/historyporn which is awash with incredible images that make ideal starters or can liven up a powerpoint. This picture of soldiers from nine different countries sent to help put down the Boxer Rebellion is a case in point.
