History is all around us. Many books, pictures, films and articles claim to present the 'true' story of a particular historical event. But what is history? Is there only one true story? Or do many versions of the truth exist? This program investigates the ways in which historians, students and everyday people make sense of the past. Using the Eureka uprising as its historical context, the program examines the skills and tools required to understand history. By looking at major events and influences, change and continuity, interpretation, evidence and what's left out of history's various grand narratives, students will gain a greater understanding into the processes involved in history making.
