Primary v. Secondary Sources
In the classical context, primary source material refers to any material from the ancient world itself, including ancient texts, inscriptions, coins, archeological materials, and so forth. Secondary sources may interpret or discuss prior events, documents, or physical objects. Secondary sources include books or journal articles that address the ancient world or its literature. Secondary sources frequently rely on primary sources in their analysis. Thus, secondary sources may be a useful strategy for locating relevant primary sources.
