Historians have become increasingly sensitive to social and cultural theory since the 1980s, yet the actual methods by which research is carried out in History have been largely taken for granted. Research Methods for History encourages those researching the past to think creatively about thewide range of methods currently in use, to understand how these methods are used and what historical insights they can provide.
