What is the difference between oral sources and other historical sources?
Oral sources are made up of living memories, that is people describing events that they have lived through (your own grandparents, as an example) and histories and stories handed down through many years. Before the invention of writing, most history was passed on in this way. Other sources would be written, artistic (paintings, sculpture) and the archaeological records left by buildings, tools and other items in use at the time.
