    Welcome to the History WikiProject on the English Wikipedia!

    We are a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to history. If you would like to join us, please feel free to add your name to the list of project members.


    Popular pages[edit]

    A monthly popular pages report for this project is available, updated by Community Tech bot.

    You can view a list of our popular pages, at: Wikipedia:WikiProject_History/Popular_pages

    Lists and outlines[edit]

    The list of basic history topics is intended to provide an overview of the coverage of history on Wikipedia. It is rapidly becoming one of the best history browsing tools on Wikipedia. The List of history topics page provides a history link for every subject for which there is a list on that page, still has some redlinks. Some of those redlinks can be edited to point to existing article sections (in the main article for the corresponding subject), while the rest need articles or sections created so that they can be pointed to them.

    Article alerts[edit]

    As per the notice at the top of this page, this project is not fully active. however, below are some automated features that you may find useful for working on articles on history-related topics.

    Wikiproject structure and scope[edit]

    Founding and development[edit]

    Significant milestones for this WikiProject:

    WikiProject structure[edit]

    WikiProject History has developed several structural features to help manage our work:

    • Coordinators are responsible for maintaining the administrative aspects of the project
    • Working groups host work on several specialized tasks, including article quality assessment, detailed article and content review, and offline publication.
    • Task forces are more informal groups for collaboration on specific topics within history.
    • WikiProject history recently expanded into Wikibooks.
    • See below for more information, including various additional roles and group information, in the section project staff and working groups.


    The goals of this wikiproject are: a) to improve Wikipedia's coverage of history by creating, expanding, and maintaining history-related articles. b) to provide guidelines and recommendations for articles that describe all aspects of history. c) to serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to history in Wikipedia, d) to maintain the history portal and its sub-portals, e) to answer queries about history on the reference desk, especially the humanities reference desk.

    Outline of history articles[edit]

    The entire subject and Wikipedia's coverage of it is intended to be summarized in the Outline of history and its branch outlines. These are in turn is part of Wikipedia's outline system which is one of Wikipedia's main contents systems. Please see the article Outline of history. Please look this over and fill-in missing topics.If Wikipedia has an article or article section about those topics, please add links to them.

    While analyzing the outline, please answer the following questions (and fix the outline as needed):

    • What's missing? Is the structure of the outline (sections and indents) representative of the subject? Does the outline help understand the relationships between the topics presented in the best way possible?

    The overall purpose of the outline is to help readers comprehend the subject by showing what belongs to it, and within the subject what belongs to what.The outline is a taxonomy of the subject, and also serves as a table of contents and navigation aid to browse Wikipedia's articles (and article sections) about the subject.

    It is also a useful tool for the WikiProject to analyze, plan, develop, and revise history-related material. It is a hub from which to organize historical topics.

    It was built as a "reverse outline", a structural model of an existing work, which in addition to being a summary of the work, can reveal the gaps and other weaknesses for revision purposes.Please help improve it. It's our bird's eye view.Thank you.


    Most articles within Category:History and its sub-categories are within our scope. There are already several other history projects with more specific scopes so the majority of our work is on articles that do not seem to fall into other projects' scopes. For further clarification:

    • Articles with a "History" section, however long, are not in our scope
    • "History of..." articles are within our scope

    As of 22 June 2024, there are 49,726 articles within the scope of WikiProject History, of which 346 are featured and 1,033 are good articles. This makes up 0.73% of the articles on Wikipedia, 3.18% of all featured articles and lists, and 2.6% of all good articles. Including non-article pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, etcetera, there are 177,974 pages in the project.

    The list of history topics lists of basic history topics are some articles that are in this project's scope. The latter list is not intended to be a comprehensive treatment of the subject, but rather an overview. The Lists of topics are intended to be comprehensive and to include links to every article related to the subject on Wikipedia. See List of mathematics topics and List of psychology topics as examples.

    A number of lists and meta-lists are maintained in Wikipedia:

    Project staff and working groups[edit]

    The goal of this project is to serve as an active resource, where other editors can seek help or get questions answered, or get help with any topical efforts they may be working on. and also, at some point, we will try to resume various basic wikiproject tasks such as article assessment, working on group projects. to that end, we may create some sort of list here of active volunteers, or editors, or just anyone who can occasionally take a little time to answer questions, help with various tasks and efforts.

    Project Coordinators[edit]

    WikiProject personnel

    For purposes of helping coordinate project activities, the users listed below have indicated a willingness to perform such functions.

    • Former project leaders, with thanks:

    Please feel free to contact them directly if you have questions regarding this project which either haven't been responded to here or regarding any other matters you believe are relevant to this project.


    Coordinators. The coordinators are generally responsible for maintaining all of the procedural and administrative aspects of the project, and serve as the designated points-of-contact for procedural issues. They are not, however, endowed with any special executive powers.


    • Coordinators. The primary responsibility of the regular coordinators for the WikiProject, as well as the page coordinators, are the maintenance and housekeeping work involved in keeping the project and its internal processes running smoothly; this includes a variety of tasks, such as keeping the announcement and open task lists updated, overseeing the assessment and review processes, managing the proposal and creation of task forces, and so forth.
    There is fairly little involved that couldn't theoretically be done by any other editor, of course, in only a few places have the coordinators been explicitly written into a process, but since experience suggests that people tend to assume that someone else is doing whatever needs to be done, it has proven beneficial to formally delegate responsibility for this administrative work to a specified group.
    The coordinators also have several additional roles. They serve as the project's designated points of contact, and are explicitly listed as people to whom questions can be directed in a variety of places around the project. In addition, they have (highly informal) roles in leading the drafting of project guidelines, overseeing the implementation of project decisions on issues like category schemes and template use, and helping to resolve disputes and keep discussions from becoming heated and unproductive.

    Working Groups[edit]

    Working Groups at WikiProject History:

    working groups



    The Assessment Working Group finds historical articles for the first time and rates them on quality and importance scales.
    Current active members:

    (Please feel free to add your name to join!!)



    The Collaboration working group serves to improve articles that have been assessed by the assessment department by assigning large groups of editors to improve those articles. Help can be requested for an article you are working on or you have found abandoned. A list of open tasks can also be found in a section above.

    Current active members:

    (Please feel free to add your name to join!!)



    The Review working group carries out peer reviews on historical articles and nominates articles for good and featured status. It also carries out A-Class reviews on articles within our scope. Current active members:

    (Please feel free to add your name to join!!)



    The Outreach working group acts as a central location for various member outreach work, including project newsletters, recruitment and welcoming banners, and other related initiatives. Current active members:

    (Please feel free to add your name to join!!)

    Informal subgroups[edit]


    Informal subgroups are any individual subgroup that any editor wishes to set up, on an informal or formal basis, for the purpose of gathering any group of editors together. This will be to enable editors to form their own subgroups for working with and communicating with other editors, but without taking on the formal roles and responsibilities of an official task force.

    These subgroups could be formed based on any criteria at all. so any editor could form a subgroup for communicating with editors who are new to this topical area. or it could be an informal group for brainstorming ideas for a particular topic, or a particular editing drive, or group effort, or for a specific effort to delve into a particular topic, or to set up a single new article or set of articles, or for any other reason.

    Our reason for setting up this new type of subgrouping is simple; history is a very broad and varied field. We would like to encourage all editors to take an active role here, as much as they might wish. so if you wish to set up any such subgroup, please feel free to post a notice on the talk page. We will be glad to help to promote any such efforts here. thanks!!

    Task forces[edit]

    We can have Task Forces for specific historical eras, or alternatively for specific topical areas. Please choose a Task Force below that matches the area that you most wish to work on. If you don't see an area listed that you want to work on, then please feel free to simply add it. thanks!!!!

    Sub-page for Task Force information:

    task forces

    Task Forces by era or topic[edit]

    TF Contemporary History
    • Members:
    • Writes and updates articles on contemporary history, including the items below.
      • Timelines for current year,
      • articles on current time periods;
      • historical articles in need of updates for current events.
    TF Ancient History
    TF Political history
    • Members
    • Covers political history as an area and as an ongoing topical subject for ongoing development. Please note, "political history" is a broad phrase; it refers to the central flow of history itself, as it pertains to the changes in society in general, as well as politics, and government, which most affect society, countries, world politics, and world history as a whole.
    by delineating this as a subject area, we can enable editors to give this area specific attention, separate, apart, and unique from other established areas of history, all of which also receive broad and extensive coverage here at Wikipedia.
    Possible Task Forces
    TF Medieval History
    TF Renaissiance
    TF Early modern history
    TF Late modern history

    Task forces by subject area[edit]

    Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team[edit]

    The following articles have been selected for inclusion in one or more release versions of Wikipedia. Please help ensure that these articles remain of the highest possible quality.

    Work products[edit]


    The following articles have all been featured in the Main page Did You Know section:


    Every article on a historical topic should be assigned to as specific a sub-category under the Category:History as possible, as well as to any non-history categories to which it belongs. Since Wikipedia has tens of thousands of articles on historical subjects, they shouldn't all be placed directly in Category:History; there is an elaborate hierarchy of historical categories, described here, and only the lowest-level category need be assigned.

    Category tree


    Organization of Category:History

    Category:History contains only the most general articles, such as History and Human history. Other historical articles appear in one or more sub-categories

    Category names

    The category for the history of the modern nation X should be called "History of X" or "History of the X" and included.

    Organization of national histories[edit]

    Few nations have neat histories: most have changed name, constitution and boundaries over their history. This section gives advice on creating sub-categories to reflect these changes.

    Using the United Kingdom as an example:

    Here's an incomplete diagram showing these historical categories and how they relate in the category system:

    (This diagram is far from complete: there is a Category:British Empire, not shown. Category:History of the United Kingdom is in Category:United Kingdom and so on. And there are many sub-categories. But it illustrates the principles.)

    Don't over-categorize Having added an article to, say, Category:Military history of the United Kingdom, there's no need to also add that article to Category:Military history, Category:History of the United Kingdom, Category:United Kingdom or Category:History. The category hierarchy expresses the fact that every article about the military history of the UK is an article about military history and an article about the UK.
