Short History Of The World Part 4

by Kitty Jellinek

So far in the World History series we have covered what is commonly termed as pre-history. See – Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

The definition of pre-history is the period before written recorded history and based on research, archaeology and legend.

Recorded History dates to the invention of writing – therefore I think it is appropriate to start this section with the Sumerians who are historically recognized as the first people to use writing in the true sense.
