What inspired you to become interested in the distant past? Why the interest?

I suppose for me it goes way back, for I live in Swansea Massachusetts. And with such a rich history this particular town has in southern New England, what with King Phillip's War starting not two miles shy from where I live, I guess it just grew up with me.

I never appreciated the past until I got older and into human psychology. And I began to open my eyes to how many interesting things there was in my area alone! Then I began to venture further, and whenever I went to Boston for a day or New Hampshire for a couple of nights I was looking through the history section at bookstores.

History to me is like a window to another world. A place that I can just sit back and admire like someone would do on a mountaintop. I made this club so I can see how many other people are interested in AOS history, and heck if you like other history eras, you're not alone! There's really nothing I don't like in history.

What's your story for how you got into history?

Members can now;

Submitting is open!

If you are a contributor, when it comes to submitting your works or suggesting favorites it is now automatically approved. Not needing a wait for admin approval!

-Contributors can now invite deviants to be Members or Contributors.
* If one decides to, please use wise judgment in promoting others, pick those who you know would do a good job and would be committed like you.


Welcome to the Age of Sail on DA! Where others can join into one common interest, History!

Tell your friends;
- We're a new established group and would wonderfully appreciate a little advertisement if you are willing to provide some. If you, or anyone else knows of other deviants [new or residents] at this site that have the interest this club provides you are more than welcome to offer them to join!

We're nice people;
- Oh yes! Don't be shy to ask of any questions you have. We are more than happy to answer them! Commenting or noting us is perfectly acceptable to do so. But for most questions they will be answered here...

Help and FAQ;

- Submissions?; "What can and can't I submit?"

Well, there isn't really anything you can't submit here, except for a few exceptions...

The Age of Sail is generally the time between the 16th - middle 19th century, (1500's - mid 1800's).

Ex; WWII, Greek-Roman, BC time, are not topics this club would theme.

So it would not be the best of ideas to submit anything not related Age of Sail time periods, but don't get me wrong, that's a long time frame to choose from!

- Fanart/Fanfiction; "Can I submit something movie/novel related?"

Some clubs seem to limit or not allow any fanart or fanfiction work into a history group, but here you way more than happy to! As long as it is a movie, book, or tv show related to the era.

Ex; Pride and Prejudice, Girl With the Pearl Earring, Shakespearean novels, Pirates of the Caribbean, Master and Commander, are a few of things that are readily accepted.

- Wars/Historical Happenings; "Can I submit something related to wars/happenings?"

Oh of course! Anything and everything you can think of. From Columbus to discovering America, to the Revolutionary Wars, and anything else you can think of that went on.

- People; "Am I allowed only submitting of real historical people?"

Oh heck no! You can submit fictional characters [books, movies, ect], historical people of the era, yourself and OC's (original characters), and anthromorphic comrades as well. There's no limit to what you can do!

- Sorts of Art; "Is it one kind of art and one thing only?"

Nope! It can be anything that's considered an art form!

I am doing charity art commissions (sketches) to help save Falls of Clyde, a 140 years old last-of-her-kind tall ship in big danger of being scuttled or scrapped! Please commission me to help her cause; you technically get free art because all money go directly to the rescue of this precious last surviving 4-masted, full-rigged, iron-hulled ship. New Art Commission Journal
