The following resources contain primary sources or original evidence, produced by participants in a specific event or time period, witnesses to an event or period in history, or simply people who lived in the distant or recent past. Some examples of primary sources are letters, diaries, official government records, artifacts, contemporary newspaper articles, interviews, original photographs, memoirs and autobiographies and material objects in physical or digital form.
