    On my IGCSE History exam, one of the questions dated to 1980... I thought this was a bit recent for "History", I mean, would you even call 1980 "History?"

    It's the past, therefore it is history. If something worth while happened during that period then of course it is counted as 'history'.

    Even what happened yesterday is now history.

    Plus, any item that is over 20 years old is considered as 'vintage'. Wouldn't you count such items as part of history?

    for AS we are doing up to 2007 and that is a history course. As flemming rightly said any event in the past, even if it was a day,year or centuary ago can be classed as history.
