What interests you about this occupation

It's interesting to know what people did back then and how they lived in that time and teach others not to repeat mistakes.

A qoute to explain this would be "Those who cannot remember history are condemned to repeat it". ( George Santayana)

Teaching someone something that would help them later on in their future endeavours is rewarding in itself.

Additional relevant information

I prefer ancient history rather than modern. Ancient histroy is odd and quirky making it fun to learn about rather than wars in modern.
