History: How to Analyze a Primary Source

There is no better way to understand events in the past than by examining the sources--whether journals, newspaper articles, letters, court case records, novels, artworks, music or autobiographies--that people from that period left behind. Each historian, including you, will approach a source with a different set of experiences and skills, and will therefore interpret the document differently.

Introduction One of the things that surprises non-teachers (politicians, university academics, journalists etc) is that teaching a topic in chronological order is not, in itself, sufficient to embed to sequence of events in students’ brains.

Punishments through Time

Even in SHP Development Studies students have difficulty developing a clear understanding of the chronology of the topic, despite it being taught in chronological order. Examiners report that students struggle to sequence periods and key developments correctly. This suggests that teaching in chronological order is not sufficient.

Prior to judges, magistrates and juries being introduced by Henry II in the 12th century trial by ordeal was a common method of establishing guilt or innocence. Trial by fire: This involved walking across hot coals or holding a red-hot piece of metal.

Trial by water: This took two forms. Ned Kelly: The outlaw who divides a nation. More than 130 years after he was hanged, Australia's most notorious outlaw is being buried, as old tensions resurface about what he really means to the country. To many Australians, Ned Kelly, the son of poor Irish Catholics, was a heroic anti-establishment figure who fought corrupt British colonists in the 19th Century.

To others, he was a vicious thug who murdered three police officers.
