Top definition
A student, archivist, and author of popular fiction. A quixotic hero. Eschews paradox in favor of imposing a coherent, and therefore false, narrative interpretation of the past. Still, without historians we would be even more clueless about our intellectual, political, social, and economic context. Historians create the narratives that shape our sense of heritage and our perception of "who we are." The study of history is therefore both futile and vital.
"Historian - a broad-gauge gossip." -Ambrose Bierce

historians are cool, nikki is just jealous because she is a loose ho who likes to take it in the ass and partake in a spit roast. A 10 pint challenge indeed.

historians for the purposes of the definition, shall be defined as sam, hereafter they shall also be known as sam.
the main reasons for this are as follows:
1. sams are geeks
2. sams deny the fact that they r no longer virgins, although it has only occured once it still happened.
3. they are loners
4. they read books too often and have to boast about the amount of work they have done, its uni! you dont do work!!!
5. they have no life
hence for these reasons, no bitch assd loner called sam can call me a ho!
historians can be so boring
y r all historians virgins?
y wont that historian shag me...
answer: once they've lost it once its impossible to shag them again, theyve had their quota
