Being able to analyse a source is an important skill to have as a History student. You need to be able to critically evaluate and explain a source’s usefulness and, its limitations. This task has two parts. Read on and be excited!

You need to save a copy of each, paste it to a word document that you will submit as part of your assignment. Complete the following for each source:

b) Complete the activities on the attached pages for BOTH photos.

You cannot choose a picture from the topic that you chose for your Research task.
You do not have to fill each section in the boxes/ tables.
