Year 12 – Reluctant Regicides?

Hi Year 12

This is the link for the reluctant regicides podcast discussed in class this week.

It provides some interesting and current historiographical debate around the trial of Charles I. As you listen you should make some notes on the arguments for the regicides (killers of the king) being ‘reluctant’ and the arguments against.

Year 13 NEA interesting links

Hi Year 13

I mentioned a while ago a useful website to find primary sources for your NEA. Click here to view the Modern History Sourcebook hosted by the Fordham University.

Also I subscribe to the podcast from the BBC History Magazine and the episode released this week may be of interest for your NEA if you are doing something on The Holocaust. It is called ‘The Big Questions of the Holocaust’ and is an interview with historian Laurence Rees (creater of ‘The Nazis: a Warning from History’). Click here to take a look.

I hope these are useful.

Hi Year 12

Please click here to read an article on how history has viewed Charles I. It gives lots of details about the reign of Charles I and how he had been viewed by historians which is really useful for our current studies!

Enjoy!
