food for tought

I once had a history professor who said, "Recording history is like watching the clouds, everyone looks at the same subtsance, but sees something different and later, recalls something even more different.
History, especially events before the time of written history, is subject to the writer's perception and interpretation. That has been never so true as with the history of the dark ages."

My notebooks full of contradicting information and I agree, wholeheartedly!
