  1. Historical means events that happened in the past that were written down. Technically, the historic period begins at the time writing is first used in a culture or by other observers. One of the earliest writing systems developed in Mesopotamia over 5,000 years ago.

    Historical events can be anything that happened and was recorded in writing at the time.

  2. MsSue is right, however, the records of historical events often have a lot of fiction written in the descriptions. Much is written to express a point of view, and much is written as expiedent politics of the time.
