Stoke Bruerne coursework question 2 about sorces used

Extracts from this document...


Stoke Bruerne coursework Question 2 The name of the first source is the visit. The purpose of the source is to give us detailed information on how transport changed Stoke Bruerne. The source is primary. The source is very useful because you get to see the changes firsthand and the biggest source I used was the visit so you can collect the most information. The sources strengths are: you can get to see the changes firsthand, it gives you an access of a guide and you access detailed information.

They weren't very useful because they are quite old and one of them is only based on what someone thought Stoke Bruerne would have looked like. The sources strength's are for the first one is that it's primary and for the second one is it advertises Stoke Bruerne. The weaknesses are that they are not up to date and the second one is not an actual photograph and is a secondary source. ...read more.
