A secondary source interprets and analyzes primary sources. These sources are one or more steps removed from the event. Secondary sources may contain pictures, quotes or graphics of primary sources.
Introduction. Primary sources are firsthand accounts or direct evidence of an event or period under study. These types of sources include, but are not limited to, letters, interviews, photographs, and cultural artifacts such as coins, everyday objects, and works of art.
Why are photographs useful primary sources? Photographs present a visual record of a moment in time. This can enhance our understanding of events and moments by giving us a sense of what they looked like.
For example, a photograph or video of an event is a primary source. Data from an experiment is a primary source. For example, articles and books in which authors interpret data from another research team's experiment or archival footage of an event are usually considered secondary sources.
Secondary sources are works that analyze, assess or interpret an historical event, era, or phenomenon, generally utilizing primary sources to do so. Secondary sources often offer a review or a critique. Secondary sources can include books, journal articles, speeches, reviews, research reports, and more.
Examples of primary sources: Theses, dissertations, scholarly journal articles (research based), some government reports, symposia and conference proceedings, original artwork, poems, photographs, speeches, letters, memos, personal narratives, diaries, interviews, autobiographies, and correspondence.
Primary sources provide raw information and first-hand evidence. Examples include interview transcripts, statistical data, and works of art. A primary source gives you direct access to the subject of your research. Secondary sources provide second-hand information and commentary from other researchers.

Once on Zanibar, Darth Maul received yet another pair of legs in Season 5, Episode 14. Medical droids replaced the talon legs with mechanical legs that were more human-like. These new legs returned him to his original height and made him look closer to how he had before the events in The Phantom Menace.
