Historical Sources

I think today historians find it alot more easier to get a more accurate look into our past. There is such a vast arrary of historical sources out there such as films, maps, songs, to mention just a few…But what i have learned is that you need to know the right questions to ask. Gathering historical evidence from diverse historical sources is a skill that needs to be practiced and perfected. For instance, it is interesting to note how much one can learn about the way people lived just by reading an inventory list from the past. Furthermore, it will be interesting to imagine what insights future historians will gain just be looking through the Library of Congress’s digital archive of public tweets.
