The Open History Timeline v1.1 (OHT) is an open-source content-management system designed to support online community-based history writing. It is a system that can be used to work collaboratively on defining and writing history about any subject you would like. Which questions need to be asked, and which answers are valid? The OHT is designed with the idea in mind that history is a practice – not fixed but alive, and invites users to make history through adding experiences, anecdotes and personal perspectives. The Open History Timeline is now available for download and can be used in your own projects. Built on open-source software, you can run the OHT on any web server with PERL & PHP installed.
