This talk will concentrate on calculating integral group homology via fixed points of endomorphisms of a projective presentation, in a few concrete examples. The theory which leads to this is an attempt to define homology without projectives in the context of semi-abelian categories. We define homology as a limit of a certain diagram, making use of the universal property of a long exact homology sequence. In the case when projective objects do exist, this leads to looking at endomorphisms of projective presentations, and we demonstrate this method on a few concrete examples of groups.
