Is Our Grasp Of Ancient History Any Better?
The History Channel and Other Fantasies
We barely know what went on on the other side of town last week, what makes us think that "historical" accounts from 1,000 years ago are accurate enough to take seriously?
There's an old saying: "History is written by the winners."
It's also written by people who lived in dry, arid climates and built in stone (like Egypt.) Why? Because their structures are far more likely to survive than people who built in wood and lived in the rain forest.
Also, have you ever been to an abandoned factory?
Would there be any way in a million years you could reconstruct was was built there, using what materials and methods and to what specification based on what remains?
History is an interesting subject, but conclusions merit intense skepticism.
