Sources and interpretations

In this film, Professor Arthur Chapman, gives a short introduction to how historians approach the past. He clearly explains the naive thinking that children can have about the work of a professional historian and models how to explain the relationship between history and the past in the classroom.

This film was originally part of a lecture Professor Chapman gave at our Virtual Conference in November 2020.
