These sessions considers accounts of the past as the result of a sequence of cultural and social practices. What did collating info about the past mean in practice? How was it done? What models were available? How was information acquired, collected, processed (etc. pp.)? How did one get information? What were the cultural parameters within which an author moved (training, e.g., education, etc.)? What was the impact of broader cultural/economic/religious/social changes?
