About Us

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” ~George Santayana History is the study of the past as it is described in written documents which in turn helps in shaping the future by learning from it. History spans all cultures, eras, seasons and environments and is an immovable factor that can be called upon for knowledge and insight into how the world got to the point it’s now at and how it will continue to develop in future.
