If there is one common thread that runs through more or less every history ever written of our world of Dirt it is the amount presented as truth that is quite spectacularly wrong.
There may be many reasons that can explain such errata presented as fact from the writing that is politically expedient, or at least life saving to the simply lying for the fun of it. However, the most common problem appears to be bad or mistaken research or sometimes making assumptions that do not stand up to scrutiny, if such scrutiny is made.
With that warning, I have to be honest and say that the history presented here cannot necessarily be said to be the final say, or even that accurate.
In consequence, I have made the decision to not just present that facts as I perceive them now, but also represent some of the fictions that were perceived to be correct at the time.
In times that come long after mine, it may well be that some of the longest lived of our land look back and note that even what is here is wrong, and will put forward yet another theory.
