“If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.”
– Michael Crichton, Writer
History is not only about the past. History is understanding where we are now, how we got here, understanding the mistakes and the successes that have been made and seeing how the past shapes our world today. It also offers the opportunity to study some fascinating and interesting areas of history, the individuals who shaped it and to see correlations between events from hundreds of years ago, and their sometimes frightening similarity to today.
