HISTORY




History, historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation")
is the study of the past, specifically how it relates to humans. It is an
umbrella term that relates to past events as well as the memory, discovery,
collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of information
about these events. Scholars who write about history are called historians.
Events occurring prior to written record are considered prehistory.

THREE TYPES OF
HISTORY SOURCES




Academic writing sources are the materials used by the writer to
gather information about their subject. They are used to support
arguments and theories given by historians and students of history.

Materials used to study history can be classified into three types:



primary

secondary

tertiary sources.



Print sources, such as books or journals, are commonly used sources,
but a source could also be recorded music or video, Internet sites
or physical objects.



Primary Sources


Primary sources are contemporaneous to the subject being studied.
They could be objects, letters, journal or newspapers. They must
originate from the time being studied to be accepted as a primary
source, this can include copied images of an original document,
or reprinted editions of a book. If a historian was studying
Abraham Lincoln, diaries and letters written by Lincoln would be
primary sources.



Secondary Sources


Secondary sources are nearly always textual: books or journals.
A secondary source would be an article written about a primary
source. To continue the example above, an essay or book written
about Abraham Lincoln based on his diaries and letters would be
a secondary source.



Tertiary Sources


Tertiary sources are sources that rely on secondary sources for
their information. This would include most school textbooks,
essays written at school that cite textbooks and secondary
sources. Books and essays that are historiographical in nature,
so discuss the way in which history is presented, are tertiary
sources.
