Why do we continue to associate history with a string of dates?
History and dates:
1. There used to be a time when historians were preoccupied with specific dates like when a king is born, marries, fights etc.
2. With time, historians have started to focus on many other events, processes and issues whose exact date cannot be always traced.
3. Even though dates remain very important in understanding and placing historical happenings, it is not just a string of dates.
