it should be area not era, since we don't have to specialise in time-dated history. One could specialise in things like military history, or linguistics.

Roman and Greek Antiquity, but I don't really consider myself an expert. It's the area I know most about, though. I'm also interested in other ancient civilizations, Byzantium, Japan and the histories of thinking and literature in general (and a lot more).
More generally speaking I'm more interested in political, military, intellectual and cultural history than in economic or social history.

I'm mostly interested in the Tujue (Gktrk) Empire of Central Asia (6th-8th centuries AD). I also have interests on other Turkic peoples/empires (Xiongnu, Trgish, Uyghurs, Qara-Khanids, Seljuks, Ottomans), Mongols, Romans (incluiding "Byzantines"), Tang Chinese, Japanese, Medieval & 18th century Europe, Khmer Empire, Assyrians, Hittites, etc...

I study the American Civil War extensively, enough to be at least a semi-expert (not meaning to brag, really, but I know a lot compared to my other areas).  Also, to a much lesser extent, interested in Napoleon and WWII.  I am currently studying Ancient Greece, however.

In my case, Plutarque is the very one that inspires in me the love of history. Therefore, nothing comes as a surprise when I say I am stuck with Ancient Greece and Rome. And after such a general field of history, I take great interest in (amateurishly) studying history of several nations I like: Spain, Portugal, Poland, Hungary, Austria and Russia. It seems to me that the more I learn about them, the more curiosity I have at their neighbours and as curiosity is in direct ratio with interest, I find myself end up with a very long list of the liked nations, of which the newest member is Etiopia.

My interest is primarily drawn towards the ancient world, particularly Greece and Rome and the nations with which they have interacted.  However, I have touched on those nations lying on the fringes of that period, from the earliest cultures of Mesopotamia to the ancestors of modern Britain, Germany and Spain.  Outside of them, I also touch on the Japanese and their neighbors in the Far East (China, Korea, the Mongols, etc).

In the Americas, I'm curious about the history prior to the coming of the Europeans.  Of these, the Iroquois, the Inca and the Maya grab my attention.

Proto-Indo-European and Indo-European civilizations in general and the Scythians, Sarmatians, Alans and the Iranians amongst them as well as the Proto-Slavs. IE cultures of Asia Minor, Thrace and Illyria. Classical Greece and Rome, especially the Roman Republic as well as the Hellenistic period. Caucasian history and peoples, Proto-Northwestern Caucasians; Meotians, Sinds and their ties with the PIE people as well as the contemporary NW Caucasian peoples the Adyghe, Abkhaz and Ossetes. Early to Late Medieval history, especially of Wales, England, France, Byzantine Empire. The Renaissance, Italian republics and states such as Republic of Florence, Venice, Duchy of Milan and the Northern Renaissance. Austro-Hungary and France in the age of absolutism. Regency and Victoriana periods in England, especially the social history. Russian history in general from the Kievan Rus to the USSR and Southern Slavic (Balkan) states. 18th and 19th century in the Ottoman Empire and the reforms.

Other than that I am also interested in mythology, PIE and comparative IE religion, mystery religions of Rome especially Mithraism, linguistics and languages (especially of Indo-European languages as well as NW Caucasian group -which is not IE like the Basque- and Brythonic Celtic languages, Greek and Latin); anthropology (physical and cultural), population movements, ethnology, art and art history, cultural studies, politics and cinema studies.

I am not an expert in any one of the above topics of course but I probably know more about the art of the Classical Civilizations and of the Medieval period; the social history of Regency and Victoriana, anthropology, history of Russia, England, NW Caucasus from ancient to modern and the Balkans, mythology and religions, and cinema studies than the others I've listed. There are some real experts on AE though, it's always exciting to read posts here, so cheers everyone.

Okay so I might have gotten carried away! I was just trying to get people posting on these specifics topics so that I may benefit from them. A certain individual who is well versed in Medieval studies comes to mind.

I don't really have an area of specialization in anything. I do enjoy learning about the European history. Some cultures I enjoy are the Romans, the Greeks, the Huns, and the Vikings. I also like American History, preferably pre-Civil War.

Ah, but I always got the impression that you were more knowledgeable of us.
