Prehistory never ended. We are taught to believe that at some point in time people invented writing, and ever since then everything is neatly written down for the historians to study. This is simply not true. A lot of what is happening, sometimes very important, is never recorded. There are whole communities that don't record their history in writing. If you only limit yourself to studying the written word, all you will know about is kings, priests, taxes and dictionaries written by language purists.
