About us

Histolines is a platform to compile all of the historical events in one database with an account of time and place. As it matures it will have an infinitely detailed record of history that will be easy to navigate and analyze. This platform only intakes the basic information of who, what, where, when and with whom. This prevents the usual interpretation and bias inherent in other historical sources. Histolines allows anyone to add to our knowledge of history, yet it has build in mechanisms to justify the claim and to filter out fallacious remarks and events of little importance. Learn more
