I find history interesting because it creates a backdrop to life events. In one subject I’ll be learning about Australian Aboriginal history, and in another studying English, French and Russian comparative history. Studying history has allowed me to explore different ways of viewing the past and has given me an insight on the present and the future. Eighty years in the future, historians will be bickering over the now.
