    This is a really nice thread. I can't join in with answering anything because I am rubbish at history, but it's really interesting.

    I do have a question though:

    Is history the story of conflicts and conquerors?

    I ask because I bought a book of 'historical what-ifs' a few years ago and I wad really dissapointed that all the counter-factuals were military (I should have had an inkling from the picture of Hitler, a centurion and a tank on the cover, but there you go!). I was hoping for some questions like "How close were the Romans to inventing the steam engine?"...
