Human History is an album by Ken Theriot that has become one of the most popular albums in the Raven Boy Music catalog. Several songs from Human History have become very popular, such as “Agincourt,” “Band of Brothers,” and “The Feast Song.”
Many of the songs on the album tell the story of a well-known historical event from a first-person perspective, told by a character who might have been right there in the middle of the action.
We had already written “Agincourt,” and “Band of Brothers,” which as the titles might suggest, are about The Battle of Agincourt in 1415. And we’d written “Son of The Sea,” which contains the line “I have made human history….” So based on all of that, we decided to call the album “Human History.
On the CD Baby page for the album, it is described as: “Original, infectiously catchy pop-folk songs that tell the stories of famous historical (medieval & renaissance period) events from the point of view of a single character who might have lived through them.”
