What is written history?

"...it is the fragmentary record of the often inexplicable actions of innumerable bewildered human beings, set down and interpreted according to their own limitations by other human beings, equally bewildered."
C.V.Wedgwood,
‘The Historian and the World’,
from Velvet Studies, Jonathan Cape, 1946
