The word History has been coming from the Greek word history, which means ‘inquiry, knowledge and investigation’. History is the study and the documentation of the past. According to Marc Bloc, “History is a science of man in time”. J.B. Bury has remarked that “History is simply a science, no less and no more”. Lord Acton has remarked that “History is the unfolding story of human freedom”. To E.H.Carr, “History is a continuous process of interaction between the historian and his facts, an unending dialogue between the present and the past”.
