Past and Present
How do we know about what happened long ago?
People can learn about things that happened long ago by studying sources. Sources can be people who tell us stories, places like landmarks, and artifacts, like diaries, and objects from everyday life.
The people who lived in ancient Egypt left us many artifacts to study, as well as landmarks like the great pyramids. By examining these artifacts, we no know a lot about what life was like thousands of years ago.
