What is history?

History is the study of people, places and events in the past

History is the study of events which occurred before the present time. It includes who lived in past societies and how they lived. Much of history is about famous people and what they have done. It is a very intricate and precise branch of study, and exists as written texts and images. Historians and archaeologists uncover the way things were, and analyze why events happened as they did.

History is the study of past events in chronological order from ancient times to the present. Students of history learn about what happened long ago, often discovering the mistakes of the past to avoid their repetition in the future.


History means:

1. the study of past events, particularly in human affairs.

2. the whole series of past events connected with someone or something.
History is a written record of past events, and particularly that of past human events. History includes diverse spheres of human activity, but most especially the political and economic spheres.
