Clio - Muse of History

From Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_history:

'Public history is the practice of conveying history to an audience that is not specialized in the field of history being presented - generally this means a non-academic audience'

 

"Public history is a movement, methodology, and approach that promotes the collaborative study and practice of history; its practitioners embrace a mission to make their special insights accessible and useful to the public."

National Council on Public History Board of Directors.

Public history is history that both engages the public and invites the public to participate in the writing of history
