Understanding English History


If you have an understanding of English History from Roman Britain to the European Union you will have given yourself a basic knowledge of the major events that have shaped the history of western civilization.

This course will prompt you to do much individual reading. You will learn which events have been most important in the formation of modern Britain and why they were significant - often far more significant than was appreciated by the pundits of the time. Perceptive hindsight is perhaps the most important tool in the historian's armoury!

Topics covered:

  Early Times The 18th century
  The Middle Ages The Victorian Age
  The Tudors The 20th Century
  The English Revolution The Post War Era
