No, that's a very poor definition of history. Any sort of document can be included in historical analysis, and modern history draws on anthropology and archaeology as well. Anglo-Saxon history, for example, uses written documents like the Tribal Hidage alongside consideration of artifacts like the Sutton Hoo burial. It's still history.
>>57821 >prehistory thread >turns into shitposting thread
Let me try to save it by asking questions to stir up discussion. >where did the indo-europeans converge into one people >when did they enter mesopotamia to merge with the locals >what did they bring in inventions (the wheel, herding, dogs, etc) and what did they find there that the locals had invented (farming, pooling resources together as a community, having a "king") >do you think writing evolved due to religion or due to business or due to government >when do you think culture became organized religion, and how, and was it to help the "king" rule
Stuff like that. Go at it, lets see if we can talk about things other than if shitposting is posting.
>>60917 >>when do you think culture became organized religion, and how, and was it to help the "king" rule If you're speaking of the Arya culture in the subcontinent, then king wasn't the topmost respected position. Professions were divided into four varnas, the nobles were at the top, warriors after that, then businessmen, then physical workers. Adding to that, a life was lived in four stages, regardless of varna. The first stage was where a person is a child, he has to attend school(gurukul). The second stage was when he grows up, he gets married and starts a family. The third stage was old age, retirement. The fourth stage was superoldage, retirement from the world and going to meditate in the forest until death come.
