History AS / A Level at Budmouth College
One of the reasons I love history is that it forces you to travel backward in time and actually live the events that the historian is writing about. You’re compelled to experience the event from the perspective of someone from that time, that era.
What do you believe? What are your prejudices? How would you interact with the characters? What would you see? Whose side would you be on?
