Early peoples created Myths, when they could not explain how or why things happened - from their own emotions to Nature. Traditional historians rely on man's written & drawn records to interpret past progress & myths. Archaeologists' science & artifacts form the basis of our knowledge of prehistorical civilizations, most of which seem to be in Africa, Europe, & Asia. We don't know much about ancient cultures here in North America, but we need to.
