What is a Primary Source??

A primary source is an original document or a record of a firsthand account of historical events. Primary sources include original manuscripts, correspondence, diaries, memoires, photographs and film footage, statistics and legal records. Primary sources may also include drawings, posters, inscriptions on monuments or tombstones, and writings by observers. Sculpture, ceramics, vases and paintings and religious texts may also provide primary source information.
