Greek historiography

greek historiography, ancient greek historiography
Greek historiography refers to Hellenic efforts to track and record history

The historical period of Ancient Greece is unique in world history as the first period attested directly in proper historiography, while earlier ancient history or proto-history is known by much more circumstantial evidence, such as annals, chronicles, king lists, and pragmatic epigraphy

Herodotus is widely known as the "father of history", his Histories being eponymous of the entire field Written between the 450s and 420s BC, the scope of Herodotus' work reaches about a century in the past, discussing 6th-century historical figures such as Darius I of Persia, Cambyses II, and Psamtik III, and alludes to some 8th-century ones such as Candaules

Herodotus was succeeded by authors such as Thucydides, Xenophon, Demosthenes, Plato, and Aristotle Most of these authors were either Athenians or pro-Athenians, which is why far more is known about the history and politics of Athens than of many other cities Their scope is further limited by a focus on political, military and diplomatic history, ignoring economic and social history1
