    Particularly if the history taught was far too focused on when, where and what and the very important people. That was precisely what made history "boring" in far too many cases. One of the fascinating things in history over the last decades is how it has expanded into the lives of "little people" and cultural context for a far more interesting viewpoint.

    Science has given a window with archaeology of other than palaces and grand homes revealing more than just what the powerful recorded for "history" and some changes in views of events. An example of fairly recent history changing was opening of the best kept secret of World War II with  F.W. Winterbotham's book The Ultra Secret which opened the floodgates on the role of code breaking and a more general opening of the cover and deception efforts in Anthony Cave Brown's Bodyguard of Lies. Both were flawed works, but were the initial indicators of opening the closets that had held some real WW II secrets that most definitely changed the historical view of what actually happened.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
