|Description:||The historian’s task is to make sense of the past. History helps us to understand who and what we are, where we came from and where we are heading. This involves more than just accumulating names, dates and information. It requires understanding how people are shaped by their pasts, the logic of their desires, beliefs and actions and how they in turn influence their societies and broader patterns of change.
