If you're a history student, or in any course where your research must be based on historical evidence, you need to know how to find primary sources and how to effectively use the information they provide. By using primary sources you can create your own interpretation about an event in history, or you can create new knowledge about the event.
Primary sources are the raw materials of history. They are unique materials that are created at the time of a historical event that serve as proof of historical facts.
