In 443 B.C., Herodotus joined a group of Athenians who set out to colonize a city, Thurii, in southern Italy. He died there in around 425 B.C.
The Early Life of Herodotus
Origins of the Histories
The Histories After Herodotus died, editors divided his Histories into nine books. (Each was named after one of the Muses.) The first five books look into the past to try to explain the rise and fall of the Persian Empire. They describe the geography of each state the Persians conquered and tell about their people and customs. The next four books tell the story of the war itself, from the invasions of Greece by Persian emperors Darius and Xerxes to the Greek triumphs at Salamis, Plataea and Mycale in 480 and 479 B.C.

Introduction Herodotus' Histories Today Herodotus is referred to (somewhat inaccurately) as the Father of History; in antiquity, by contrast, he was often called the Father of Lies. This evaluation is based in part on Herodotus' pro-Athenian biases ( discussed below ), but to a great degree it represents a reaction to the curious "tall tales" in which his work abounds: stories, e.g., of gold-digging ants the size of foxes (3.102-05); of races of people bald from birth (4.23) or with the feet of goats (4.25) or with only one eye (4.26); [ FN 1 ] of bizarre sexual practices (these you'll have to find for yourselves!);

The following is a description of the place: The city stands on a broad plain, and is an exact square, a hundred and twenty furlongs in length each way, so that the entire circuit is four hundred and eighty furlongs. While such is its size, in magnificence there is no other city that approaches to it. It is surrounded, in the first place, by a broad and deep moat, full of water, behind which rises a wall fifty royal cubits in width, and two hundred in height. (The royal cubit is longer by three fingers' breadth than the common cubit.) I.179: I.180:

Ancient Greek Writer
The modern Greek position relies on Herodotus' support for their quest to make the ancient Macedonians Greek. Herodotus, being one of the foremost biographer in antiquity who lived in Greece at the time when the Macedonian king Alexander I was in power, is said to have visited the Macedonian Kingdom and supposedly, profited from this excursion, wrote several short passages about the Macedonians. What did he say, and to what extent can these passages be taken as evidence for the alleged 'greekness' of the ancient Macedonians, will be briefly presented for your adjudication. Herodotus describes the episode with the Persian envoys, who apparently visited Macedon when Alexander I's father Amyntas was in power, and how Alexander I succeeded in 'taking care of the Persians' by murdering all of them and removing their luggage and carriages. When the Persians attempted to trace the lost envoys, Alexander I cleverly succeeded in manipulating the Persians by giving his own sister Gygaea as a wife to the Persian commander Bubares. Here Herodotus writes:

Herodotus. In his nine scrolls known as The Histories, Herodotus described the conflict between his own people, the Greeks, and the Persian Empire.
Herodotus In his nine scrolls known as The Histories , Herodotus described the conflict between his own people, the Greeks, and the Persian Empire. While telling the story of their own civilization in conflict with another, many people would be inclined to take sides, but Herodotus strove to show each side's perspective in the struggle. In this, he was like the great poet Homer, but Herodotus innovated even further. Homer wrote his epic as if narrated by a goddess; Herodotus spoke with his own voice, and relayed his own experiences and research. Before Herodotus, accounts of important events had been the purview of royalty, minstrels and priests. Perhaps his innovation in relaying information was partly responsible for his reputation as the "Father of Lies." Historians of classical antiquity suspected Herodotus of passing along hearsay, and perhaps even inventing tales for his own amusement. In his writings, Herodotus often digressed, sharing what he learned from interviewing those he met, and creating some of the more interesting parts of his Histories . He interviewed Scythians living near the Black Sea about their lives, for instance. He also asked them what they knew about the lives of other nomads living farther east. In some cases, Herodotus relayed information that had been through several translations yet, remarkably, modern excavations in Russia and Kazakhstan have found artifacts similar to what he described.

Titular metropolitan see in Macedonia , more correctly Serrhae , is called Siris by Herodotus (VIII, 115), Sirae by Titus Livius (XLV, iv).

    Historian Born: c. 484 B.C. Died: c. 430 B.C. Birthplace: Halicarnassus (now Bodrum, Turkey) Best known as: Ancient author of The Histories Herodotus is the ancient writer and reporter called "The Father of History." He was among the first to approach the reporting of history in a logical and skeptical way; he tried to separate true events from myth, and made a point of identifying his sources and noting his trust (or lack of trust) in them. It didn't hurt that he was a colorful writer and commentator; his most famous work, The Histories, remains a widely-read account of ancient facts and legends and (in particular) of the Persian invasion of ancient Greece. (It's the main source for details on the famous battles at Marathon and Thermopylae.) Ironically, the details of Herodotus' own life are unclear. He is believed to have been born at Halicarnassus, on the Aegean Sea in Asia Minor, and to have traveled widely, collecting and recording stories as he went. Extra credit: The Histories is sometimes titled The Inquiries or simply Histories ; all are variations on the original Greek.

    Herodotus wrote a history of the Persian invasion of Greece in the early fifth century B.C., known simply as The Histories of Herodotus . This work was recognized as a new form of literature soon after its publication. Before Herodotus, there had been chronicles and epics , and they too had preserved knowledge of the past. But Herodotus was the first not only to record the past but also to treat it as a philosophical problem, or research project, that could yield knowledge of human behavior.
    His invention earned him the title "The Father of History" and the word he used for his achievement, which previously had meant simply "research", passed into Latin as

    Herodotus - Greek historian
    The father of history
    Herodotus, later famous as a historian to the point of becoming known by his admirers as the 'father of history', was born in Halicarnassus (now Bodrum, Turkey) in about 484 BC.
    As a son of a prominent family Herodotus received a good education sufficient to allow him to eventually gain an extensive familiarity with the literature of ancient Greece.
    He seems to have travelled very extensively in the Greek and Persian worlds into which he had been born.
    The inhabited world known of by Herodotus. On this map you can discern the Mediterranean Sea with today's Italian peninsula with mainland Greece being located to its right with today's Turkey, (or Asia Minor), being furthur right again.
    In Herodotus day Halicarnassus was an "Ionian" Greek colonial town subject to Persian overlordship and located at the bottom left of Asia Minor.
    When he was in his early thirties (circa 457 BC) some political difficulties between Herodotus' wider family and the rulers of Halicarnassus contributed to his living in exile for several years. During these times his initial destination seems to have been the the island of Samos but thereafter Herodotus traveled widely throughout virtually the entire ancient Middle East visiting Asia Minor, Babylonia, Egypt, and Greece.

    (c.484-425BC) The "Father of History" was born in Halicarnassus (today's Turkey). He was exiled from his city after having conspired against the Persian rule, and went to Samos.
    Herodotus was to make journeys to places like Asia Minor, Babylonia, Egypt and Greece during his lifetime, and he wrote about the different people and cultures he met.
    It was Herodotus who was the first person to speak about the idea of the free men of the west against the slaves of the east.
    At the age of about 37 he went to Athens, and won the admiration of many people, including Pericles and his good friend Sophocles.
    A few years later he settled in southern Italy, in the Greek colony Thurii. He was to spent the rest of his life working on his History, which describes the history and civilization of the ancient world.
    Herodotus tried to achieve objectivity and tried to separate what he held for true and what he thought was unprobable.
    He founded the grounds for historiography in trying to draw moral lessons from various events, showing for example how the gods punish the arrogant. Webmistress V.E.K. Sandels
