Why the Method of Oral History Is Important for Different Studies and Specialties
An oral history is a narration of the facts about a person’s life that turned up in an unusual situation. Usually, journalists or interviewers record oral history by media gadgets in modern times. It is a common way to use this method among YouTube bloggers, film directors, archive workers, and historical researchers. In early times, people were unable to collect testimonials or take interviews like now. As such, modern society is missing many details about the domestic life of ordinary people of ancient times. For example, the glories of Greece are described with no mention that for every free male citizen in Greece, there were at least seven slaves. What was life like for Greek slaves? Today, we do not have testimony from them (Brown).
