At the History Studio, we tailor our research to best serve your project's unique needs. We provide:
A HISTORIAN'S EYE VIEW
Chances are you've already done some period research. We can bring it to the next level with our knowledge and networks. We ensure you get the best material out there. And we'll sort out the "wheat from the chaff," letting you know what histories are respectable and what to steer clear of. We have access to sources open only to academics and connections to a network of historical experts.
THE BIG PICTURE
We can provide rich profiles of a historical period or event to establish an accurate context for your project. What was the nation fighting over politically? What were the pressing religious issues of the day? How did race and gender relations look? We can answer the big questions in concise and understandable terms.
THE FINE DETAILS
If you want to know how a baby was delivered in 1790, what "tough dancing" looked like in the Lower East Side in 1907, or how much beer the average family consumed in any given year - we'll give you answers. No detail is too obscure. We can show you how people spoke, looked, behaved and lived a typical day.
PERIOD SETTINGS, CLOTHING & TECHNOLOGY
We can help you visualize life in your project's historical world. We'll unearth rich information on the physical realities of life - from what appeared on a typical desktop to what the average working man wore.
PHOTO, VIDEO & NEWSREEL IMAGES
Whether you need rare or well-known visual imagery, we can find it with our access to a wide range of archives.
