And you are also one of them as you are visiting this site about the world’s historical events. The person who studies and writes about the past is known as a historian. Mostly, historians collect old written documents, oral accounts, ecological markers, and material objects such as art and statues of the past.

We all know that studying history involves people, events, dates, and places, etc. So, it starts with who, what, where, and when. But the historians not only investigate these ‘how why’ questions. They study the whole event very deeply and then they debate (argument) about that specific event with each other. Such debate advances their knowledge and makes their minds sharper.

Studying history is always popular. It is the tradition of humanity to learn about their past. So, historical study is much more popular than you think.

Historians have a vast influence on the world. Whenever someone asks about what we can learn from history, it usually leads to the sayings of a great philosopher.
