Widely referred to as The Father of History (first conferred by Cicero), he was the first historian known to collect his materials systematically and critically, and then to arrange them into a historiographic narrative.

The Histories-his masterpiece and the only work he is known to have produced-is a record of his inquiry (orhistoria, a word that passed into Latin and acquired its modern meaning of history), being an investigation of the origins of the Greco-Persian Wars and including a wealth of geographical and ethnographical information. Although some of his stories were fanciful and others possibly inaccurate, he claimed he was reporting only what had been told to him. Little is known of his personal history.
