history and story 

history: We use “history” to talk about a chronological collection of events that show how something has progressed, changed, or developed over time (the history of a the world, a person’s medical history, the history of the Vikings, etc.). A “history” usually deals with political, social, or economic topics and often includes an explanation of the events. Example: This book about the history of Greece is fascinating.
story: A “story” is a description of an event or series of events (real or fake) and is often told to entertain the listener.
Example: Her stories about her crazy family are fun.
