What’s the difference between the past and History? On first glance, one might say they’re the same, but is that really true? In reality, it would be impossible to account for every single thing that occurs in the past, so historians pick and choose what they feel is most important and organize it into a narrative. History is an inherently interpretive process; it’s more like an artwork, and historians more like artists, than we give each credit. But what does that mean when you take into account inherent biases, subjective interpretation or even incorrect information? And what about historical fiction, like Downton Abbey, where the historical context is accurate but the characters fictional? Is Downton Abbey just as relevant of a historical text as say, an AP History book? Watch the episode to find out!
