Is it the story of Henry and his 6 wives? Rosa Park making a stand for her race on the Montgomery bus? Or even something more recent 9/11?

My favourite is either the civil war in England - Oliver Cromwell vs Charles 1. Or learning about KKK and how (nearly) everything has changed since then

You do know that Cromwell had relatively little to do with Charles for most of the time? Cromwell didn't take a larger role until the later parts of the first civil war. Fairfax was the Commander in Chief of the New Model Army as well.

Do you know that 9/11 was created by Federal reserve bank (Rockefeller)?
To create a motive to counter-attack Arab countries and to be able to control their oils?

Anything from the American Civil War onwards, and especially how it influences modern day culture.

I like learning about Nazi Germany- especially lives of 'ordinary' men and women, Britain during the 2nd World War and recent events such as 9/11 and the London Bombings. I don't think theres enough teaching about modern day domestic policies (which are rather interesting).

So hard but here goes:

Kind of 1066- The War Of The Roses love people like Iabella Of France, Elizabeth woodville and the role of women in this period.

The Tudors.

Most for the 1600's bore me.

The Regency Period

Victorian Era

The Wiemar Republic/Nazi Germany

The American Civil War, The Napoleonic Wars and the formation of castles within the UK for internal protection.

I wrote my dissertation on the differences in Muslim history between Baybars Bundukari and Saladin. The Crusades are very interesting, but very difficult to fully follow i found.

I also like researching why people think certain things and how they can be argued. Eg. What evidence do people who deny the Armenian Genocide use and how can they justify the actions of the Turks against the Armenian Christians?

Ancient Greece/Rome/Egypt - The Native Americans and in general, colonization of Northern America - The Wild West.

Pretty much really all history interests me to some point and I've looked into everything I can, I dislike researching about Victorian period and the tudors.

I'm way more interested in American history for some reason. 9/11 interests me so much.
I really don't like learning about ancient history.

Read Crossing the Rubicon if you're interested in events surrounding 9/11.

I still think the most relevant part of 9/11 to Britain is the way the BBC announced the collapse of the Pentagon V building before it even happened. There's stacks of evidence too, market data, and analysis on the nature of the way the building collapsed and chemical analysis of the debris.

Its coverage of the Boston Incident is depressing too - very little focus the fact some sections of the city were put under near martial law for a few hours.
