What is the best example of a primary source document useful in the study of history?
Different fields and scopes of historical study use different primary sources. Sometimes it helps to use new sources to expand the field of study. And sometimes certain sources aren’t available (were either destroyed or just not kept). So there is no one single ‘best’ source that fits every study. However, traditionally written sources you can find in archives are considered the best to use.
