LET US BEGIN- WHY HISTORY MATTERS

  • History is abused (movies)
  • YOU are history
  • Those who do not understand the mistakes of the past will be forced to repeat them
  • Canadian Identity- people all over the world identify you with Canada because of what happened in the past- what will people think in the future
  • What would people think if we did not remember things of the past?

HOW DO WE LOOK AT HISTORY

  • Close your eyes: pretend you are an Icelandic immigrant living in the area of Lindsay in the early 1800’s and you see a Moose.
  • Two ways to think about history:
  • We can be in the shoes of the people of the past and be a part of it to try and understand why
  • We can never understand the past through people because what they thought in the past is nothing like the way we think today
  • So then how do we know anything about history?

MARCO POLO’S UNICORN

  • Marco Polo- 13th century Italian explorer- recorded his travels across Asia to China and back
  • Came across numerous animals and sights he had never seen before and didn’t understand. His recordings show us how we think of things within our own known perspectives

MARCO POLO’S UNICORN

  • “unicorns are scarcely smaller than elephants. They have hair of a buffalo and a single large black horn in the middle of the forehead. They are very ugly brutes to look at…not at all as we describe them to be…”
  • What was he looking at, that he thought was a unicorn?

THE POINT IS…

  • Marco Polo used what he knew to understand what he didn’t know
  • As historians we cannot put our present ideas into the events and minds of the past
  • How to do this: EVIDENCE
