History travel is a way of travelling tightly connected or even overlapping with the cultural travel. History travellers can be groups or individuals travelling in order to explore and learn about the history of a foreign civilisation or culture and either broaden their knowledge on the topic or simply to learn something new. Simplified, history is something which was, and history travel looks for what is left of it.
