Wikidocumentaries is a wiki for small history
Wikidocumentaries is a wiki for writing history for every historian: amateur historians, scholars and all citizens interested in history. Everyone can investigate the archives of cultural heritage from their own perspective, combine materials into narratives, enrich them with additional information and share with communities of their liking. Wikidocumentaries gives people a freedom to roam in history.
It is based on the existing content in Wikimedia projects, which are complemented with smaller and lesser topics. Small places, all related people ever lived or happenings they were involved in. The project topics are limited by the scope of the project, micro history. Respecting privacy is very important.
Wikidocumentaries brings together data, articles, and media from Wikimedia projects and ties it in with content from other open repositories, that are accessed through their public APIs.
