“The relationship between history and the community should not be in either direction: but rather a series of exchanges, a dialectic, between information and interpretation, between educationists and their localities, between classes and generations. There will be room for many kinds of oral history and it will have many different social consequences. But at bottom they are all related.”

Paul Thompson, ‘The Voice of the Past’ (1988)
