(484 ? BC - 425 BC)
Herodotus lived during the fifth century BC, in the city of Halicarnassus (Region of Turkey). He is best known for his work entitled, The History , which is one of the first historical narratives to discuss the life, customs, history and politics of the Middle Eastern, and Aegean region. Though the highlights of his actual life remain vague, it is thought that in 457 BC he was exiled from Halicarnassus for conspiring against Persian rule. After he was exiled, he traveled to Samos, and to other parts of the Mediterranean, including Asia Minor, Egypt, Turkey, Babylonia and eventually to Athens, Greece. In Athens he won the esteem of many of the most notable men of Greek history, including Pericles. His journeys throughout the Aegean, eventually led to the southern pan Hellenic colony of Thurii, Italy. The remainder of his life was spent writing The History , which was full of first hand accounts of the lands, traditions, and cultures he encountered on his journeys. Herodotus has been regarded as the father of modern historiography. Historiography is in essence the history of historical writing and thought.

Dynasty XXVI
490-c. 431 B.C.E
Herodotus was a Greek historian in the fifth century B.C.E. His birth was around B.C.E. References to certain events in his narratives suggest that he did not die until at least 431 B.C.E, which was the beginning of the Peloponesian War. In his later years, Herodotus traveled extensively throughout the Eastern Mediterranean. There, he visited the Black Sea, Babylon, Phoenicia, and Egypt. He is best known for his work entitled Histories . Because of this, Cicero claimed him to be the Father of History. Histories is the story of the rise of Persian power and the friction between Persia and Greece. The battles that are described are the ones fought at Marathon, Thermopylae and Salamis. His story is the historical record of events that happened in his own lifetime. The first Persian War took place just before he was born, while the second happened when he was a child. This gave him the opportunity to question his elders about the events in both wars to get the details he wanted for his story. Histories also contained information having to do with the country of Egypt. The history, geography and ethnography of Egypt are what Herodotus wrote about. The customs of Egyptians fascinated him because of their differences compared to Greek culture. He wrote about how the Egyptians did everything backwards in relation to the Greeks. Observations he made describe how the Egyptians wrote from right to left, instead of left to right. Activities like eating were done outside while doing their "easement" indoors. The reason he gave was that the Egyptians thought "unseemly but necessary things should be done in secret, and things not unseemly in the open."

East Is East And West Is West - Or Are They? National Stereotypes In Herodotus
Christopher Pelling (University College, Oxford)
[This paper started life on 23 February, 1995, given as one of an informal Oxford series on 'boundaries'. The purpose of the seminar was to stimulate discussion, and to give researchers an outline of developments in fields with which they might be unfamiliar. Those purposes suit Histos too, and so the paper is given here in its raw, unfootnoted, oral state, with only a few local pleasantries suppressed. Comments are invited, either via Histos or directly to . They will then be taken into account before a more formal version appears in the printed Histos. Boundaries in Herodotus: a generation ago the book to talk about would have been H.R. Immerwahr's Form and Thought in Herodotus (Cleveland, Ohio, 1966). Immerwahr emphasised the importance of natural boundaries in Herodotus' narrative, and pointed out how often disastrous campaigns begin with a river-crossing, as tyrants transgress or try to change this barrier imposed by nature. Cyrus at the Gyndes - threatening to bring it low, cutting it into channels and losing a year , 1.189 - is the most interesting early example, though not the most straightforward. All leads up to the greatest transgressions of nature of them all, Xerxes' abuse of the Hellespont and its narrative twin at Athos: Xerxes turns sea into land (the Hellespont) and land into sea (Athos), and we know he will not prosper. It can indeed be shown how 'land and sea' work against him in several different ways, so that there is almost a magical dimension to his fall (cf. Pelling in

Ancient Egypt: Herodotus' description of some of the pharaohs
Herodotus on the pharaohs
Herodotus was born about 490 BCE at Halicarnassos in Carien and died in the late 420's. His travels took him to Asia and northern Africa. At Athens he became a friend of Pericles and Sophocles. In 444 BCE he went to Thurii in Italy where he died. The second volume of his Histories describes Egypt's geography and people. He also relates stories about a number of pharaohs. He has often been accused of not being very truthful or, at the very least, of being wrong, gullible or both. Diodorus Siculus explains his criteria for including material in his own Historical Library We will pass over the baseless news of Herodotus and other writers about Egyptian history, who instead of the truth wanted to present us rather with tales of wonder and entertaining inventions; in contrast we will report after attentive scrutiny what the Egyptian priests themselves wrote in their documents.

Herodotus on Menes
Herodotus on Menes
The name of Menes (Min, Meni or the like) appears first in New Kingdom documents, at the top of the Abydos list, which dates to Seti I and in the Turin Papyrus, written during the reign of Ramses II . Herodotus follows this tradition, as does Manetho. The Turin list refers to him as King of [Upper and] Lower Egypt Manetho credits him with having reigned - or perhaps lived - for some 60 years. (The Turin Papyrus gives 2nd Dynasty kings similar spans: Anedjib -74 years, Semerkhet - 72, Hotepsekhemwi - 95 etc. From the 3rd Dynasty onwards their spans become much shorter). In view of the short life expectancy, which was less than 40 years, this seems to be improbable but not impossible. Still, one cannot be sure that Menes existed at all as an individual, either as Aha, as an inscription in the Neithhotep mastaba at Naqada seems to suggest, or as Narmer, who, on the basis of seal impressions in the tombs of Den and Qaa, is considered by many to have been the founder of the first dynasty. The name may have been an epithet, given to a number of kings. Of Min, who first became king of Egypt, the priests said that on the one hand he banked off the site of Memphis from the river: for the whole stream of the river used to flow along by the sandy mountain- range on the side of Libya, but Min formed by embankments that bend of the river which lies to the South about a hundred furlongs above Memphis, and thus he dried up the old stream and conducted the river so that it flowed in the middle between the mountains: and even now this bend of the Nile is by the Persians kept under very careful watch, that it may flow in the channel to which it is confined, and the bank is repaired every year; for if the river should break through and overflow in this direction, Memphis would be in danger of being overwhelmed by flood.

Herodotus (c. 485 BC-425 BC)
Herodotus of Halicarnassus (modern Bodrum in Turkey) was an ancient Greek historian who lived in the 5th century BC (485 BC - c. 420 BC). He wrote a history of the Persian invasion of Greece in the early fifth century B.C., known simply as The Histories of Herodotus . This work was recognized as a new form of literature soon after its publication. Before Herodotus, there had been chronicles and epics, and they too had preserved knowledge of the past. But Herodotus was the first not only to record the past but also to treat it as a philosophical problem, or research project, that could yield knowledge of human behavior. His invention earned him the title "The Father of History" and the word he used for his achievement, historie , which previously had meant simply "research", took on its modern connotation of "history".
The Histories was often attacked in the ancient world for bias, inaccuracy, and plagiarism. Similar attacks have been made by a few modern scholars, who argue that Herodotus exaggerated the extent of his travels and fabricated sources. Respect for his accuracy has increased in the last half century, however, and he is now recognized not only as a pioneer in history but in ethnography and anthropology as well. Published between 430 and 424 B.C., the Histories
As to Herodotus' life, we know that he was exiled from Halicarnassus after an unsuccessful putsch against the ruling dynasty in which he was involved, and he withdrew to the island of Samos. He seems never to have returned to Halicarnassus, though in his Histories he appears to be proud of his native city and its queen Artemisia. It must have been during his exile that he undertook the journeys that he describes in the

Herodotus' Conception of Foreign Languages
Thomas Harrison (University College, London)
In one of the most famous passages in his Histories , Herodotus has the Athenians give the reasons why they would never betray Greece (8.144.2): first and foremost, the images and temples of the gods, burnt and requiring vengeance, and then 'the Greek thing', being of the same blood and the same language, having common shrines and sacrifices and the same way of life. With race or blood, and with religious cult, language appears as one of the chief determinants of Greek identity. This impression is confirmed in Herodotus' accounts of foreign peoples: language is - with religious customs, dress, hairstyles, sexual habits - one of the key items on Herodotus' checklist of similarities and differences with foreign peoples. That language was an important element of what, to a Greek, it meant to be a Greek, should not perhaps be thought surprising. As is well known, the Greeks called non-Greeks barbaroi , a term usually taken to refer pejoratively to the babble of foreign speech.

Herodotus and the North Carolina Oral Narrative Tradition
Philip Stadter (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)
[Editor's Note: See also the response by John Marincola As scholars who live among books, we find it difficult to imagine the cultural world and the intellectual activity of people to whom books represented a very small part of their way of knowing the world, and a relatively new way to communicate with others or to preserve one's knowledge. In studying the beginnings of literature in the Greek world, our focus has been on the development of the epic tradition and its fixation in written texts, and more recently on the culture that lies behind the creation and performance of lyric poetry and elegy. The oral pre-history of Greek prose has been relatively neglected, although the work of Aly early in the century and of others like Lang, Murray, Thomas, and Evans on oral tradition and Herodotus in the last decade have indicated more work to be done. However we are still far from placing Herodotus and his work securely in their cultural milieu. It is here where I believe some comparative study of the quite different narrative tradition of the North Carolina mountains can be helpful. Recent work on early Greek oral tradition has been especially influenced by the work of Vansina and Finnegan on African oral traditions.
