Our mission is to teach people how to *Make Cool Stuff* using historic techniques and to preserve the dead or dying arts for future generations.
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. How to History seeks to rediscover and preserve those skills and to spread them far and wide to any who wish to understand them.
