Just History Posts was started in October 2016 after the author, Gemma Hollman, graduated from her Masters in Medieval History. Having spent years writing about history, there was a hole in her life! Just History Posts was a way to share the interesting things she had learnt throughout her studies, and to continue to learn more about the history of our world.

Years and many posts later, Just History Posts now has a thriving community on Facebook and Twitter. With daily posts about history from all time periods and all countries, there is always something new to learn. This blog continues to explore topics in more depth, covering great people, world wonders, social and political history, and even a war against emus!

Gemma has continued her mission to bring her love of history to the public by publishing history books for a popular audience. Her debut book, Royal Witches: From Joan of Navarre to Elizabeth Woodville was published by the History Press in October 2019, with her second book, The Queen and the Mistress: The Women of Edward III following in November 2022. She has also written articles for a variety of publications including Stylist Magazine, Cotswold Life, Inside History Magazine and BBC History Extra. Her work has been recognised by the Royal Historical Society, of whom she has been made a Fellow.

In the spirit of sharing history everybody wants to learn about, if there are any topics you would like to see covered in blog posts, do leave a message either in the comments of any page on the website or via social media. If you have any extra pieces of information to add to a post, it would be great to hear it in the comments.

If you don’t know where to start reading, this page collects all of Just History Posts’ blog posts in one place under handy little topics.

Thank you for visiting Just History Posts and I hope that you come away learning something new!
