Because humans are rooted in time, people do by one means or another pick up ideas about the past and its linkages with the present, even if these ideas are sketchy or uninformed or outright mythological. But it is best to gain access to the ideas and evidence of History as an integral part of normal education. The broad span of human experience, viewed both in depth and longitudinally over time, is the subject of History as a field of study.
