Course Overview

To make sense of the world we live in it is essential to understand key events, individuals, movements and conflicts that have shaped history. History’s importance goes beyond the subject’s intrinsic interest and appeal. Every aspect of our lives, from our beliefs, culture, institutions, language and way of life are all shaped by the past.

The course follows the theme of ‘revolutions’ in modern and early modern Europe. You will study the political, religious, social and economic changes that took place in Britain between 1625 and 1701, the revolutionary events in Russia between 1894 and 1924 and the Witch Craze in Europe and North America between c1580 and 1750.
