WH I, Unit 1

  1. Historiography
    The study of the writing of history
  2. historical bias
    The filter through which a person sees the world, which is shaped by the social, political, economic, and geographic forces in which a person lives

    Historical bias affects the interpretation and analysis of human history, because each historian exists in a particular time and place, and is therefore shaped by the knowledge, tools, and climate of his/her times.
  3. cultural diffusion
    The exchange of goods, ideas, and customs among different cultures

    Cultural diffusion occurs due to trade, warfare, and migration.
  4. The Neolithic Revolution
    The development of agriculture, which allowed humans to settle in one place and, eventually, to create civilizations
