Pseudohistory

Pseudohistory is the historical equivalent of pseudoscience. Pseudohistory typically blends together real history with myths and legends, without any attempt at criticism or fact checking. Pseudohistory often serves a political, nationalist or religious agenda.

The following have all been described as pseudohistory: Afrocentrism, creationism, and the works of Erich von Däniken and Immanuel Velikovsky, and the mythology of most religions.
