Year 13 NEA links

Hi Year 13

As promised, here is a link to 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 an episode released last year 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.

Year 13 podcast for upcoming Stuarts essay

Hi Year 13

Please follow this link to a fantastic podcast http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/barry-coward.mp3 (featuring Barry Coward!) it might be of interest for your upcoming Stuarts essay on Cromwell as a military dictator. It pretty much debates your question and shows that a balanced answer to this question is essential.

I would definitely recommend listening to it before you attempt the essay.

Enjoy!
