Most of us rely on a few translators of Ancient Greek as to what happened back when.
Sitchen is an excellent example of the herd believing the translators about Ur yet
he taught himself cuneiform and came up with an entirely different "story" using the
same source texts. Yet, all this is understandable in the context of so much time
passing from the original text writing and the translations.
What about purposeful lost history to living peoples? I had never thought of that!
The Turkish people had a written language that was simplified as text, although not
in spoken form. In other words the spoken language never changed, only the symbols
placing that language on paper (or stone) was simplified. This was around 1910.
After 1970 there would be no living people in Turkey who knew the original written
language and the newer simplified text. Therefore no one could read the historical
texts written prior to 1910, nor understand them except for linguistic specialists.
In practical application within a generation, no one could understand the original
texts because it no longer was taught in the school systems.
And in recent Chinese history, the same thing happened. I believe it was in the late
1950ies or 1960ies that the Chinese ideographs have been simplified. Effectively in
China today, again with the noted exception or very old people, no one can read the
original written texts (newspapers, books, etc.), therefore it is non-existent other
than what the government declares what the past has been and was written; which we
know are not compatible with actual events.
This is nothing more than "for what it is worth" department. Those little known
tidbits that are so highly significant in trying to sort out what is really
happening in the world.
