Throughout history, skills and techniques of the craftsman and guild were guarded trade secrets. Everyday life skills were passed on by word of mouth, seldom committed to the written page. In time, that knowledge can be lost. The same is equally true today. Even with all the modern ways we have of preserving and storing information, things get lost and forgotten. There’s no telling how many skills have been erased from memory over the past thousand years or so. How to History seeks to rediscover and preserve those skills and to spread them far and wide to any who wish to understand them.
