About

History news, articles, reviews and quizzes.

Each article includes key facts and people to help introduce the topic, with links to other relevant information where available, and we have included a glossary for ease of comprehension - just mouse over the word highlighted in red. More detailed information, a few tangents, and references for direct quotations are scattered throughout articles and are indicated through the information icons. We believe that history is best understood through independent research, both book-based and through experience.We therefore include ideas for tasks, visits, and further reading, as well as discussion points, which we hope can inspire adults as much as children.
