Today, history as a discipline demands greater evidence and less bias than ever before.
We are lending our voices to those in the past, and we are learning more about ourselves and where we came from in the process.
From scholars and writers to politicians and inventors, everyone has a differing opinion on why the past is relevant, and what the study of history is.
The dictionary defines history as “the study of past events, particularly in human affairs” or “a branch of knowledge that records and explains past events.”
Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.
