About

A historian is a person who studies and writes about the past and is regarded as an authority on it. Historians are concerned with the continuous, methodical narrative and research of past events as relating to the human race; as well as the study of all history in time.

A historian is like a detective for the past. They spend their days digging through clues left behind, like documents, artifacts, and even buildings. Their job is to understand what happened in the past, why it happened, and how it affects the present. Historians analyze this evidence carefully, separating fact from opinion. They then share their findings through books, articles, or even museum exhibits, helping us learn from the experiences of those who came before us.
