History Keeping

Archiving and passing on the history and wisdom of a people to future generations.
Culture, Arts
Creative artistic endeavor and practices of cultural evolution and wellbeing.

For millennia cultures have struggled to keep accurate and enduring records of their past experience. For much of this time history was kept as an oral tradition handed down, often in verse, from one generation to another. Later on, written and pictographic histories took over as more accurate and enduring archiving method. Recently, digital archives have begun to replace paper histories.
