    Why do we continue to associate history with a string of dates? What is the first statement of this audio clip?

    There is a certain reason because of which we continue to associate history with a string of dates.

    Earlier, history was associated with only battles and big events involving the kings and their policies.

    Historians only wrote about the year in which the king was crowned, the year in which he was married, the year in which his children were born, the year in which he fought particular wars and the year in which he died.

    They also wrote about the year in which the next ruler succeeded to the throne and so on.

    For these types of events, particular dates are necessary, and that is why dates in history continue to be important.
