That's not subjectivism. History is its own knowledge form. It can't make experiments and it is not allowed to invent its own data, meaning it needs to get by on information and facts that are always underdetermined and in need of interpretation. It is a form av narrative, interpretative probabilistics.
Of course what society happens to be interested in and bothers to provide funding for is entirely subjective. But it has an impact on how history is understood.
