I used to teach history and needed to teach the difference between primary and secondary sources.

We did an exercise on Emily Davidson who threw herself under the King's horse during the Derby,as a form of suffragette protest and was killed and about which everyone knew. Except she didn't. And her name was Davison. And she died later.

Apart from that it was all true.

Check, check and check again!!

Best regards,
