It could be part of a 'Talossan starter pack' we issue to new citizens.

This is a project we want to get done.  Some work was started on it, but the problem is it's too big a job to get done quick.  As you point out, the amount of source material is huge.  So, the same problem that exists for new citizens (overwhelming amounts of text) is the same problem faced in trying to condense it.

We need historians, parsers and authors.

I also agree that any further entry barriers should be avoided...

But, a non-mandatory quiz could be done.  Just for the funs.

In fact, we could have some kind of history course with quizzes in a similar vein to how memrise was used for a language course.

I argue strongly that the only way we can ensure that anyone actually learns the national history is by requiring new citizens to read about it, then pass an "open book, multiple choice" test on it. It worked in the old days.

We need historians, parsers and authors.

If we get that collaborative effort up and running at some point in the future, I'd be interested to pitch in—condense/summarise some old events/documents, proofread, that type of thing.
