Stories

Stories and mythology have been part of human culture since times immemorial.

History, on the other hand, has been found to be a tough discipline to get right.

Trying to fit a complicated history into some narrative or a well known pattern is bound to lead to disastrous results.

This sort of approach can be compared to how Procrustes used to try to fit all his captives into an iron bed by stretching them or cutting their legs off.
