What is History?
History is: Stories of a country, a group of people, or just one person. They can be stories of warfare, fashion, politics, language, people, religions and technology. It is a part of our past and a part of our future. History tells us how and why things happened in the past. It helps prevent us from repeating past mistakes and helps us understand the present. There are different areas of history and historical research. The three most influential are: Social history; looking at people and societies, Economic history; how money, trade, technology has developed and Political history; the actions of governments and monarchs.

History – Terminology & Concepts
Quite often you will hear people around you say things like, 'I haven't enough time', or 'It isn't the right time', or even just 'What time is it?' The concept of time is one that is important to all societies whether they measure their time by wristwatches or by the movements of the sun. There are many different ways of measuring time but in your life, time is measured by the clock. Entering the events down in the order they happened is known as putting them in chronological order. A timeline lets you record events in the order they happened, writing down events as they occurred. A timeline is useful because it can show the events of just one day, or a year or even a century.

Sources are the raw material of history - they are what history is made of. As historians we have to do some detective work to help us in our investigations, looking at sources is a major part of that detective work. By looking at objects from the past we can discover more about what was happening then. Sources can be books, toys, photographs, newspapers, sound and TV recordings, art work, diaries, government documents etc. Anything can be a source as long as it gives information. There are two types of sources that a historian can use to help them find out more about the past. Primary Sources (recorded at the event) and Secondary Sources (recorded after the event). BackBack - HeritageHeritage
Our heritage is our link to the past. Have you ever looked at your family heritage? Is there a box full of photographs and letters in your attic or at your grandparents' house? Memories, old photographs, letters, jewellery, anything from the past that you treasure, are part of your heritage. They are important because they can tell you something about where you came from. All these amazing memories and treasures need to be protected. BackBack – 20 th Century20 th Century
20 th Century World History
The construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Before 1932, crossing Sydney Harbour involved either taking a ferry, or going 20km out of the way over a series of small bridges. The Berlin Wall - from construction to destruction The Berlin Wall represented more than just a concrete wall. It was a symbol of the division of a country and its people.

Who Is That?
Stalin - a totalitarian dictator in Russia Joseph Vissarionovich Dzugashvili was born in 1878 in Georgia, a province in the south-west of the Russian Empire. He later changed his surname to Stalin, which means 'man of steel' - a clue to the type of person he was. Mother Teresa – In India Mother Teresa was born on 27 August 1910 in a small town called Skopje, which is in modern-day Macedonia, in Eastern Europe. She was christened Agnes Bojaxhiu and grew up in a very Catholic home. As a small child she heard stories of the work that Catholic missionaries did with poor people in India and she was inspired by those stories. She decided to become a missionary nun herself.

Who Are They?
The Suffragists The women's suffrage (right to vote) campaigns emerged around the world throughout the 19th century. Women had to pay taxes like men did, but they did not have equal voting rights like men did. Many women, therefore, believed that they should not be prevented from playing a role in making the laws. Dynasties A dynasty is a series of rulers who are most often from the same family. The term can also be used to describe the era or period during which that particular family ruled. Back HomeBackHome
