So what is history?? and whose history is it anyway? What is put down in history is the view of the surviving or conquering parties who will naturally record their version of events and/or rubbish the idealogies of those they have cut down. Archaeology relies on 'facts' and one has to question just whose facts those are. I have little time for people who dismiss out of hand anything that cannot be 'scientifically proven' or that might just pertain to something outside of their own five inadequate senses. Sadly those people are blessed with little or no imagination and even less sensitivity. Just because you're too short-sighted to see it, don't mean it ain't there. Academia can be a dangerous god to worship.
