Sources of History
History is a very interesting subject at Advanced level and I have experienced the goodness of this study through sharing some important books, articles with my students as well other teachers. Reading is a very imperative habit to be cultivated such that historical jargon and arguments start to flow smoothly. Young historians should be avid readers and I will make an effort to share with you some of the books and works in History that have helped students excel beyond their expectations. The following sources are essential for History students, Oral sources, written evidence, archaeology, anthropology, linguistics, botany. Numerous books, articles have been written in an effort to make the above sources meaningful and I encourage teachers, students, lovers of history of Zimbabwe and African history to follow through this blog so that they get to read and have analytical insights in line with the most wonderful academic discipline worth of study than ever before in this 21STcentury-History. The Zimbabwe School Examination Council (ZIMSEC) Advanced level syllabus (2015-2022) recommends that some of the books I am sharing with you be read but it is observable that some more sources are worth reading which are not mentioned in the syllabus. To enjoy more intellectual fulfillment and success in History there is need for more exposure in Historical literature which makes you mature in the way of Historians. Again there are also revision guides/books worth reading if one is to become an exceptional young student who masters the subject. Interestingly having an understanding of some of the following books, articles in your archive, and file as a historian can make a better person. I will also share with you some reviews on some works which I shall post using this blog for the benefit of every lover of African History in particular Zimbabwe History.
