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.
