Different sub-fields of History are defined on the basis of the time span covered (Ancient, Medieval, Early Modern, Modern, and Contemporary History), of the geographic area concerned, or of the specific approach or viewpoint they involve. Therefore we talk about cultural history, intellectual history, diplomatic history, economic history, and so on. In many cases, the research and teaching interests of one historian encompass more than one sub-field.
