In the medieval era scribes and poets wrote about war and conflict for a class who participated actively in those activities. As a result, a great deal of the writing is actually very accurate in its depictions because the audience knew when it was inauthentic. This strikes me as an interesting point because the cyber writing is so so so bad in comparison. There is very little that chronicles cyber events that does so in a way that is authentic.
My point is, the chroniclers or 14th century Scottish birder wars were better historians than the majority of journalists and writers covering cyber security today.
