General History

 History in the past

Course Description:

As mentioned in the topic, in here we will try to re-typed about what was happening in the past for our knowledge to avoid the bad thing happen in the future. And might be to learn about how we have to behave with each other among humans.

History (from Greek ἱστορία, history, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation") is the study of the past as it is described in written documents. Events occurring before written record are considered prehistory. It is an umbrella term that relates to past events as well as the memory, discovery, collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of information about these events. Scholars who write about history are called historians.

History can also refer to the academic discipline which uses a narrative to examine and analyze a sequence of past events, and objectively determine the patterns of cause and effect that determine them. Historians sometimes debate the nature of history and its usefulness by discussing the study of the discipline as an end in itself and as a way of providing "perspective" on the problems of the present.

General History is a second foundation stone of the Final Honour School: a choice of nineteen periods is available, and each student may study one of these. The papers differ from those available in the Preliminary Examination in several important respects. First, the whole of European history from the rise and fall of the later Roman Empire to the Cold War is covered, across fourteen periods. Second, in many of these periods, and increasingly from the sixteenth century onwards, it is possible to study the interaction of European with extra-European history; by the late twentieth century, European history is also necessarily worlded history. Third, there are three papers devoted specifically to American history, and one devoted to the wider world in the nineteenth century studied as far as possible from a local rather than a Eurocentric perspective.

Stories common to a particular culture, but not supported by external sources (such as the tales surrounding King Arthur), are usually classified as cultural heritage or legends because they do not show the "disinterested investigation" required of the discipline of history. Herodotus, a 5th-century BC Greek historian is considered within the Western tradition to be the "father of history", and, along with his contemporary Thucydides, helped form the foundations for the modern study of human history. Their works continue to be read today, and the gap between the culture-focused Herodotus and the military-focused Thucydides remains a point of contention or approach in modern historical writing. In Asia, a state chronicle, the Spring and Autumn Annals was known to be compiled from as early as 722 BC although only 2nd-century BC texts survived.

Ancient influences have helped spawn variant interpretations of the nature of history which have evolved over the centuries and continue to change today. The modern study of history is wide-ranging and includes the study of specific regions and the study of certain topical or thematical elements of historical investigation. Often history is taught as part of primary and secondary education, and the academic study of history is a major discipline in university studies.


The focus will be about the lives, technologies, and monuments of past cultures in a wide range of historical periods, from ancient times to the late 20th century hope so to join our thriving history society and contribute to our successful newspaper

General History specializes in the study of past societies through their written documents, many cultures are best approached not just through the texts that framed their lives, but the landscapes, architecture, and objects they made or inhabited. Combine the best of both worlds: training in critical historical source analysis with practical archaeological methods, in our exciting new degree. You can select courses in Ancient, Medieval or Modern as well as Economic and Social History, or even specialize in the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine. Other modules offer insights into gender history or the history of warfare and violence.
