Weakness Strengths
He was bias ­ politically. Had a preference to Would take into account opinion that would
moderate oligarchy rather than radical go against his views.
Any conflicts in evidence he came across he
would either merge the two pieces together
which would result in confusion. Or have a
preference for one of the sources without
evaluating each source to come to that
Reliance on what other people wrote, so
some of his information would have been
directly quoted from other sources without
researching the matter further
Evidence to show problems as he would use
other people's accounts, showing that he
would not conduct his own research in some
case and the resources he used would not
have been used correctly.
