History is....

the study of past human activity in all its variety across the world. Historians seek to identify those events and people that were important to the past, as well as those that continue to be important to the present. The indispensable perspective of time enables us to transcend our parochial horizons. Through investigation, analysis, writing, discussion, and appreciation of our past, we come to a better understanding of ourselves and the general human condition.
