Primary & Secondary Sources

Primary and secondary sources are critical tools for the historian. A primary source can be a document., image or artifact that provides evidence of the past. As Williams notes, the primary source "is an original document created contemporaneously with the event under discussion." 1

Secondary sources can be books, articles or any other material that selectively use primary sources to interpret the past.
