? It is very simple to distinguish a primary source to a secondary source. Primary sources are originally made by an individual or a group of people. Those are books made personally by an author, a painting made by the artist himself or a novel that is written by an inspired novelist. Everything that is authentic or first – handedly made are the primary sources. While the secondary sources, those are the documents that are already revised or modified. Those could also be already photocopied and sometimes it continually changes over time. Some are made in paintings, written in books, made of statues or murals. And mostly are preserved novels, clothing, vehicles that are seen in different museums. That is the beauty of history, it is significantly a story of glorious events.
