Job Description for Historian

Historians study events, political systems, ideas, and people from past eras by researching and interpreting various historical documents and sources. They approach this task by first gathering data from various sources, such as ancient artifacts, items from excavation sites, and historical books and archives. From there, they must be able to analyze this evidence, determine its authenticity, and make hypotheses about its significance. With these hypotheses, they begin to track historical developments in a relevant field in search of support for their projections. If they are able to come to a conclusion, historians will usually be required to write reports, journals, and/or books regarding their findings and theories. They may also arrange to have their findings presented on websites and in exhibits in museums or visitor centers.
