I created this website in 2006 to share various papers I have authored. This site has not been peer-reviewed. All are for your review. Should you find that I have made any mistakes, please feel free to contact me via e-mail. I assure you that I have made every effort to properly cite my sources.

Most of the history content on this site first appeared from 2006 through 2015 on historynut.info (link goes to saved versions on The Internet Archive Wayback Machine). From 2016 to 2018, my works were hosted on timthehistorynut.com (another link to the Internet Archive Wayback Machine). In October 2018, I decided to rebrand, and created timsheehan.info.
