Keep working hard, we’re almost there!

Year 12 – Stuarts helpful website

Hi Year 12

Here is a link to a helpful website ‘The BCW Project’ that provides a detailed overview of events and key people in the time period 1638-1660, so it is good for revising the causes and events of the Civil War, search for settlement and Regicide. It has timelines of events, biographies of key people from the time period and some useful articles (some of which have links at the bottom to transcripts of original documents from the time!). Have a look!

Year 12 – Stuarts Task: Reluctant Regicides?

In your spare time listen to this podcast from the National Archives. 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.
