The field of historical study embraces all recorded expressions of human activity. History includes the record of the political experiences of a people in its internal and external phases, and it also surveys the social and economic aspects of life, forms of artistic expression, intellectual achievements, scientific progress, and religious beliefs. Because of its broad scope, history provides an excellent approach to all studies that emphasize human activities.
