History  is a branch of knowledge that records and analyses past events – political, economic, social and cultural. It is, in effect about knowing and interpreting our past in order to understand present and perhaps even predict our future. Historians delve into significant phases of human activity and study its influences on life. A study of history develops higher order thinking skills (HOTS!)
