When did History actually begin?

Basically history began when man first started to documents events in writing. Anything before the advent of writing is usually referred to as “prehistoric”. The prehistoric era accounts for the periods of man’s evolution and development that preceded man’s ability to document events. One could say that history began 3500 years before Christ as man began to write around that time.
