"On the tomb of the nineteenth century Church historian Bishop Mandel Creighton are inscribed the words: "He tried to write true history."

Like the bishop - who was a member of my own college at Oxford - I believe that there is such a thing as "true history".

What happened in the past is unalterable and definite. To uncover it - or as much of it as possible - the historian has several tools, among them chronology, documentation, memoirs, and the vast apparatus of scholarly work in which others have delved and laboured in the same vineyard."
