What one learns, depends on where and when one learns it.
History is not only written by victors, that genocide eliminates the people while cultural0cide removes the physical representations.
Many cultures did not develop writing systems and fewer bureaucracy.
what we guess, pretend and imagine
versus the evidence
how they got around: technology
where and when they roamed
to the modern era
Humans vs nature
Society vs Demographics
Columbus was never in what is known as America.

Viking stories often refer to a Viking Harold the Child Lover.
After pillaging a village, the children would be used for entertainment.
Tossing them in the air and spearing them. Viking fun.
Harald thought this was excessive and preferred to bury them alive in pits.
Just brutal, nothing perverse like the Vatican Sex crimes, eh.
Anyway, part of my family’s Saga.
