When it comes to research (especially with things like history) it’s vitally important to be aware of the sources we use to get our information; be they primary, secondary or tertiary sources. They also allow us to read between the lines and identify potential bias in the texts we study. So this page will be dedicated to a list of all the sources I have used in creating this podcast, in no particulr order. Hopefully many of you will benefit from this reading list.
