Documenting the Scene of a Historic Event

Just as you are doing, good historians, writers, and investigators visit the scenes of the crimes or events or situations they are investigating.

You never know what you might learn until you go there..

At a minimum, you?ll be able to set the scene for yourself and your readers. You will have your own images and sensory memories to use in describing the scene when you write about it.

Far beyond that, even in a landscape that seems to lack hard evidence or true clues, you?re likely to learn more than you think.

So what do you do when you are at the site of an historic event.

Question for you to consider: why does the legal system have some reluctance to use digital photography in crime scene recording?
