Wow, this looks really fun.  I love learning new things.  I am going to try to narrow it down to five periods of History and send in my answers.  It will probably be helpful that my husband is a History teacher, so I have lots of scholarly resources at home.

Hm... I am definitely considering this one. I would need these on my list:
1) La Belle Epoque in Paris, but particularly Montmartre (and more late 19th C - no need to get into the 20th C! Wink) - bohemian living with artists, cabarets, absinthe, and more!

2) The Tower of London - okay, it's a place - but in particular Anne Boleyn; and I also like: the Traitor's Gate, the menagerie, the tale of the two princes in the tower... and more

.... other than that I'd be batting around a few ideas from my list of options. Some more definite than others (I may have an "Art of ________" theme). Though I will say I'm not really an expert/professional/etc, I just have a genuine interest in some historical periods/events/people!  Undecided

To psyche...

Even today Montmarte is...interesting. At any rate it's definately not your average over romanticized idea of Paris. You must be a fun person to craft for if you you're putting it down! I think I'd be afraid what the crazy people on craftster might come up with for that topic :-p

I'm back after a long hiatus. Not doing any big swaps right now but feel free to message me for small ones and supply exchanges. I have a bunch of fabric that I'd like to swap for different supplies! 

Also, I have a pintrest now Smiley

Can I tell you how much I love the Tower of London? It's a great day out and probably the best tourist dollar (pound) in London. The Yeoman Warders are extremely entertaining. I think I've been there three or four times. I never tire of visiting it.

The last time we were there, we went across Tower Bridge and then came back later and saw it open for a tall ship. My husband, who has been to London dozens of times (his sisters live there) had never seen it. So we plonked ourselves next to the Thames at the appointed time (it was late afternoon). And then what happens but the posh snack bar we were near was closing for the day and so gave out the unsold pastries to the few people standing there waiting for the bridge to open. It was awesome.

I just got approved so here are my five-

2. The pre-raphaelite brotherhood
3. The Romantic period
4. Emily Dickinson
5. Medieval England

I am on my moms iPhone so it's too hard to write more. Looking forward to learning lots of new things!

Welcome new participants, yay for more exciting historic periods!
Wow, fiorinda, you have made me very curious - I will have to do some googleing, because I know all these things by name and know so little about them...

Hm, I have always skipped the typical touristy destinations... but Towers sounds really interesting.

Don't worry about being anglocentric, aethelberga, I'll balance it with my germanocentric list Cheesy if it won't work, we can at least both feel embarassed for eurocentricity together Grin Funny you have the Latin language on your list - I thought about including ancient writing in general, but changed to a Roman then.

I included the links of the Staffordshire hoard to the historic craft-along thread which I herewith introduce to you:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323898.0
It could be a useful database for historic background and historic craft information. You could post links for your partner, or about stuff we discuss here, and it would be easily acessable. Also, I hope for lots of actual crafts being posted there.
Whatever it is, please post, because right now, it looks like aethelberga's and my private thread Grin

Can I specify in my questionnaire that I can't do any costumes? I've never done one before, so I don't know how it would come out, plus I really don't have the money to do it right...

Oh absolutely. I don't think anyone is actually expecting you to make them a costume (that might be taking the idea of a "large" to an extreme).
