WikiProject History Goals

The goals of this wikiproject are:

  • to improve Wikipedia's coverage of history by creating, expanding, and maintaining history-related articles.
  • to provide guidelines and recommendations for articles that describe all aspects of history.
  • to serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to history in Wikipedia.
  • to maintain the history portal and its sub-portals
  • to answer queries about history on the reference desk, especially the humanities reference desk.

Improve the bird's eye viewEdit

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 look it 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):

  1. What's missing?
  2. Is the structure of the outline (sections and indents) representative of the subject?
  3. 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.

WikiProject History Structure

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

  • Coordinators are responsible for maintaining the administrative aspects of the project
  • Departments 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


Nuvola apps kpdf.png
WikiProject History Scope

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 15 October 2019, there are 32,468 articles within the scope of WikiProject history, of which 268 are featured. This makes up 0.55% of the articles on Wikipedia and 2.94% of featured articles and lists. Including non-article pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, etcetera, there are 99,194 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:

WikiProject History Basics

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.

History of Lacock Requires a rating and possible expansion/cleanup

Vital articlesEdit

These articles need to gain featured status as soon as possible:

Project coordinators

The project 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.


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

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.


The primary responsibility of the project 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.




The Assessment department finds historical articles for the first time and rate them on quality and importance scales.



The Collaboration department 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 here



The Review department 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.



The Outreach department acts as a central location for various member outreach work, including project newsletters, recruitment and welcoming banners, and other related initiatives.

Task forcesEdit


Task forces are used to focus attention on specific areas with a project's scope. WikiProject History has no task forces yet. Some may be introduced to work on specific areas if needed.

WikiProject History Categories

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 treeEdit


Organization of Category:HistoryEdit

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

See also: Wikipedia:Auto-categorization

Category namesEdit

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

The history of subject Y should be categorized under "History of Y". But the alternate name "Xish history" is acceptable. When a country no longer exists, there's no need to have a separate "History of" category for it. For example, since we have Category:Ancient Rome, there's no need for a category "History of Ancient Rome".

When "History of X" becomes large (more than fifty articles, say), create sub-categories and move articles to them. Standard sub-categories include:

  • "Political history of X"
  • "Economic history of X"
  • "Religious history of X"
  • "Legal history of X"
  • "Cultural history of X"
  • "Military history of X"
  • "Presidents/Prime ministers/Monarchs/Heads of State/Rulers of X" (delete as appropriate)

Don't create sub-categories until you have enough articles to populate them. As a rough guide, it's not worth creating a sub-category unless you have five articles to put in it.

"Y history of X" should be a sub-category of both "History of X" and of "History of Y". For example, Category:Military history of the United Kingdom is a sub-category of both Category:Military history and of Category:History of the United Kingdom.

Organization of national historiesEdit

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:

                                    |                            |
                            History by nation             History by period
                                    |                            |
                         .----------+-----------+    .--.        |
                         |                      |    |  |        |
                   United Kingdom   Republic of Ireland |  Ancient history
                     |  |  |  |                 |       |        |
  .----------+-------+  |  |  `------------+----+       |        |
  |          |       |  |  |               |            |   .----+-----.
  |    Great Britain |  |  `-------.    Ireland <-------'   |          |
  |          |       |  `------.   |       |                |          |
  +----------+-------+---.     |   `----+--'                |    Ancient Rome
  |          |           |     |        |                   |          |
  |       England     Scotland |   Northern Ireland         |          |
  |          |                 |                            |          |
  `-+--------'                 `-----------+----------------+--.       |
    |                                      |                   |       |
  Wales                              Ancient Britain         Roman Britain

(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-categorizeEdit

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.
