Abstract: History by its very nature is a process of enquiry rather than a body of definite knowledge. Knowledge in history is constructed from sources which give us evidence on which to build an interpretation of the past. Our children should be encouraged to construct their own views of the past which arc valid as long as they are based on the evidence. If we are to involve our children in this process of enquiry our teaching must include sources.
