Four activities for A level on Richard III

These resources were created by Andrew Wallace to help his students at Robert Barclay Academy in Hertfordshire deepen their understanding and knowledge of the events of 1483. It’s obviously a complex period in terms of the pattern of events and also because of the many names students need to recognise and the competing arguments about Richard’s motives and choices.

Andrew’s four activities are given below.

1. What tensions existed within the Yorkist dynasty
in the early 1480s?
