The term History comes from the Greek historia (ἱστορία), "an account of one's inquiries," and shares that etymology with the English word story. The 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica stated that "history in the wider sense is all that has happened, not merely all the phenomena of human life, but those of the natural world as well. It is everything that undergoes change; and as modern science has shown that there is nothing absolutely static, therefore, the whole universe, and every part of it has its history."

In this category, you can find a wide range of articles about natural and human history starting from prehistory reaching contemporary history. We tried to cover global events with equal emphasis on the countries in the narrative. Available articles include the history of countries, biographies of the most important historians, and the history of different fields of human knowledge.
