S: Michael Wagner. How do we Know Project

FC: Herodotus

1: Herodotus was a Greek Historian.

2: Herodotus was the first Historian known to record his findings systematically, setting the tone for many, many years to come.

3: Sources (The New Oxford American Dictionary) claim that he tested his facts accuracy to a certain extent and arranged them in a well-constructed and vivid narrative.

4: The truth is defined as honesty, reliability, or veracity.

5: Many historians tried to find the truth as accurately as they could. You could compare them to private investigators.

6: Knowing that he organized his facts in an orderly manner meant that he wanted to know where his facts were at any given time.

7: Herodotus also arranged his facts in a well constructed and vivid narrative.

8: The only work he is known to have produced is "The Histories". This was a great masterpiece.

9: "The Histories" is a record of his "inquiry", being an investigation of the origins of the Persian Wars and including a wealth of information.

10: Modern scholars generally turn to Herodotus's own writing for reliable information. This shows that they believe in his writing to be true.
