Should you believe|the history books?

50%

I think all history books are completely factual and should be trusted.

It depends who’s written the books and why - only some can be trusted.

50%

I believe all first person accounts of history, but nothing else.

50%

It depends what you mean by ‘believe’ - there’s no right or wrong, just different perspectives.

    Many perspectives put together often form a fuller picture, but often victors or a favoured perspective are exaggerated over others.

    I think history is partly a lie and we shouldnt just rely on books to tell us abt the past but think for ourselves about what makes sense :)

    History isn't always fact but perspectives so don't always trust it :)

    I think that we should not believe in history books as there is not that much evidence that is about someone/something

    Either way History still gives us facts even if we know the facts are lies. Lying can give historians a more in depth view of society.

    It's so hard to know what to believe sometimes especially online.Probably always worth checking -someone has to be more reliable out there?

    People are allowed their own opinions, but how do we know what's the truth and what someone's made up?
