    stretching back 40,000 years

    Is "stretch back" same as "date back"?
    1)The word “myth” comes from the Greek “mythos”, meaning a word or a story. Every culture makes stories about the creation of the world and the origin of humankind. These stories are called myths. Humankind has made myths from the beginning of history. The oldest living mythology is that of the Australian Aborigines, stretching back 40,000 years.
