The files in ~/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari/History are not  
WebHistory objects, though I can see why the file extension may have  
led you to believe they were.  These files are extra metadata that  
Safari keeps around for sake of Spotlight, and are not something that  
you should work with directly.
