History by field[edit]

The history by field section follows the structure and classification system used on the Lists of basic topics page, and provides a history link (leave the redlinks in place) for every basic list subject. --The Transhumanist 22:02, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Basic history concepts section[edit]

I've pruned and alphabetised the 'Basic history concepts' section. The stuff I removed was un-historical topics such as the Big Bang, Evolution, geological time periods, and the like, which are to do with the past, but not really history. If no-one objects, I'm going to remove the one-line definitions of the terms, since they are all linked to articles, and make the section into a 2- or 3-column list.

The "History of" section needs links![edit]

Please add some relevant links to the history section.

Links can be found in the "History of" article for this subject, in the "History of" category for this subject, or in the corresponding navigation templates. Or you could search for topics on Google - most topics turn blue when added to Wikipedia as internal links.
