What is argument in history?
Argument is the essence of history. Knowledge of the past is produced by a process of questioning (enquiry) and reasoning (inference): historians interrogate the remains of the past (relics, reports, memories) in order to arrive at knowledge about the past through a process of argument.

Who do we study history?
History helps us understand change and how the society we live in came to be. The second reason history is inescapable as a subject of serious study follows closely on the first. The past causes the present, and so the future.
What does history tell us in general?
History tells you the story of how your nation, city, or community came to be everything that it is. It tells you where your ancestors came from and tells you who they were. Most importantly of all, it gives you the ability to spot (and appreciate) the legacies you may have inherited from them.
Why history is so important?
Studying history enables us to develop better understanding of the world in which we live. Building knowledge and understanding of historical events and trends, especially over the past century, enables us to develop a much greater appreciation for current events today.
