Do you imagine cavemen going out to club a bear while cavewomen stayed home with the kids? Did you learn in school that the Greeks invented civilisation? Do you believe that aliens built the pyramids? When you see the image of apes evolving into man, do you stop to question the idea that it represents a progression to the ultimate goal of contemporary Western civilisation? These are all myths about the ancient world perpetuated by the media, uninformed pseudo-scientists, and sometimes outright racists. The way we teach history tends to focus a model of humanity that's reinforcing 1950's white gender roles and reproducing capitalist patriarchy. I'll discuss a few ways in which a common conception of the past doesn't add up, why we've come to think of history in this biased way, and how we can continue to question and correct these misunderstandings.
