About history
History (from Greek ἱστορία, historia, meaning “inquiry; knowledge acquired by investigation”) is the study of the past. Events occurring before the invention of writing systems are considered prehistory. “History” is an umbrella term that relates to past events as well as the memory, discovery, collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of information about these events. Historians place the past in context using historical sources such as written documents, oral accounts, ecological markers, and material objects including art and artifacts.History also includes the academic discipline which uses narrative to describe, examine, question, and analyze a sequence of past events, investigate the patterns of cause and effect that are related to them. Historians seek to understand and represent the past through narratives. They often debate which narrative best explains an event, as well as the significance of different causes and effects. Historians also debate the nature of history and its usefulness by discussing the study of the discipline as an end in itself and as a way of providing “perspective” on the problems of the present.Stories common to a particular culture, but not supported by external sources (such as the tales surrounding King Arthur), are usually classified as cultural heritage or legends. History differs from myth in that it is supported by evidence. However, ancient influences have helped spawn variant interpretations of the nature of history which have evolved over the centuries and continue to change today. The modern study of history is wide-ranging, and includes the study of specific regions and the study of certain topical or thematic elements of historical investigation. History is often taught as part of primary and secondary education, and the academic study of history is a major discipline in university studies.
Herodotus, a 5th-century BC Greek historian is often considered (within the Western tradition) to be the “father of history,” or, by some, the “father of lies.” Along with his contemporary Thucydides, he helped form the foundations for the modern study of human history. Their works continue to be read today, and the gap between the culture-focused Herodotus and the military-focused Thucydides remains a point of contention or approach in modern historical writing. In East Asia, a state chronicle, the Spring and Autumn Annals, was known to be compiled from as early as 722 BC although only 2nd-century BC texts have survived.

In a clash involving three Moroccans at the MSV-Arena, it was Lucas Ocampos who decided the game with his late minute strike.

had the chance to take an early lead after Diego Carlos hacked down Adama Traore from behind. However, goalkeeper Bounou stopped Jimenez’s tame effort before Joao Moutinho sliced the rebound wide.

Thanks to that save, the former and shot stopper became the first goalkeeper to save a penalty for the outfit in the Europa League. He is the second African to save a penalty in the Europa League since Rais M’bolhi (Algeria) for CSKA Sofia against Porto in December 2010.

For Jimenez, the penalty miss was his first for the English Premier League outfit across competitions.

After a goalless first-half, the Spaniards continued to dominate and almost took the lead after 62 minutes through Youssef En-Nesyri. After a sustained spell of Sevilla pressure down their right flank, the ball dropped to the forward on the edge of the box, but he could only prod the ball into the waiting hands of Rui Patricio after being crowded out.

With the game looking to be heading for extra-time, Julen Lopetegui’s team booked their place in the last four thanks to Ocampos’ strike two minutes from full time.

Receiving the ball from Suso, Ever Banega sent a terrific ball into the area for the Argentine midfielder to head past goalkeeper Patricio.

While Bounou held sway in goal for all minutes, his compatriot En-Nesyri was replaced after 85 minutes by Luuk de Jong.

’s Romain Saiss was on parade from start to finish for Wolves, albeit, he was cautioned in the 49th minute by referee Daniele Orsato for clattering into Suso.

Wolves, whose European adventure started 13 months and 17 games ago, had too little time to respond and Sevilla saw things through to book a date with Odion Ighalo’s in the semi-final.

Winner of that encounter on Sunday night will take on either Victor Moses’ Milan or in the tournament’s final.
