The history of Buddhism has been clearly recorded since the time of the Buddha. In Tibetan there are volumes specifically dedicated to the history of Buddhism in India and Tibet.

The Four Noble Truths - GPF book 193 KB
The Four Noble Truths are the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of the cessation of suffering and its causes, and the truth of the path that achieves this.

Lord Buddha gave this teaching in Varanasi seven weeks after his enlightenment, to his first five human disciples, although other beings also came to participate.

Tibetan Buddhist History - TL April 2009 6357 KB
I will go through the Buddhist history of Tibet. We have three types of history in Tibet with many alterations: the history of the kings and the country; the dharma history (Buddhist history) in India from Buddha until now; and the Buddhist history of Tibet. Of course they are not in conflict with each other, but emphasize specific areas.
