I am going to talk about the history of the discovery of what happened (may have happened) in the so-called Dark Ages.
We used to know what happened, but the lack of evidence to back up the documentary history led to a situation where anyone's guess was as good as anyone elses. Now, the evidence is beginning to accumulate but it still leaves a lot of room for imaginative story-telling. To my mind the story of the story is better than the story itself.
