Welcome to the History Department at PHPS.

What is History?

History is essentially the study of people – how they lived, what they valued and how their lives were influenced by the time and place in which they were born.

The study of history helps us to better understand why our modern world is the way that it is, as we can investigate the causes and consequences of specific historical events.

Historians need to work as detectives – piecing together the clues to be able to come to some conclusions about what life was like in the past.
