Welcome to Day 25 of Speak Greek in March:


History (from Greek ἱστορία, historia, meaning “inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation”)[2] is the study of the past, particularly how it relates to humans.[3][4] It is an umbrella term that relates to past events as well as the memory, discovery, collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of information about these events. Scholars who write about history are calledhistorians. (Source: Wikipedia)


Προέρχεται από την αρχαία ελληνική λέξη «ἱστορία» , που σημαίνει «έρευνα, γνώση που αποκτήθηκε από την έρευνα”). Είναι η μελέτη του παρελθόντος, και σχετίζεται ιδιαίτερα με την εξέλιξη της ανθρωπότητας.
