In a discipline which usually confines itself to the questions "what," "where," "who," and "when," the most difficult - and least addressed - is "why." Why, by its very nature, goes to intent. Discerning the intent of the long dead is a task of deductive reasoning which may find itself susceptible to multiple interpretations.
