Exploring and Teaching Medieval History Project

This page is the gateway to the resources and discussions being developed for this project.

The first stage is The Historical Association’s publication Exploring and Teaching Medieval History (published late January 2018). You will be able to see and download the entire publication from 1st February from the HA website www.history.org.uk.

Then, between 2018 and 2019, I plan to build up a range of resources in support of the ideas discussed in that publication and these will be available through the sections below as they are completed.
