About the subject

History is fascinating because it is the lens through which we understand our own society. It's about the study of people of legend and of those whose names were never recorded; of the rise and fall of nations, of societies and their values, hopes and dreams; of human endeavour and success and tragic failure. Through studying History we understand more about ourselves as individuals.
