Description

A reliable and up-to-date summary of Anglo-Saxon and Norman England designed for students and teachers preparing for the new GCSE ‘Anglo-Saxon and Norman England’ British Depth Study components of the Edexcel and AQA examination boards.


‘British Depth Studies c500–1100 (Anglo-Saxon and Norman Britain)’ is a collaboration between academic specialists and experienced schoolteachers to provide a reliable and up-to-date summary of Anglo-Saxon and Norman England, complete with original sources, for use in schools. In particular, it is designed for students and teachers preparing for the new GCSE ‘Anglo-Saxon and Norman England’ British Depth Study components of the Edexcel and AQA examination boards. Eight chapters, each prefaced with a timeline and an overview, deal systematically and clearly with all the key issues defined in the exam specifications. Each chapter concludes with exam-style questions and guidance for further reading. The book provides students with a useful section detailing the character of the question types set by both examination boards and guidance on what is required to achieve a high grade at GCSE. At the end of the book is an essential glossary.


‘British Depth Studies c500–1100 (Anglo-Saxon and Norman Britain)’ includes many carefully chosen primary sources, a large number of which have never before been made available to students at this level. These serve to provide a richer, fuller flavour of the period than other textbooks. The sources are ‘folded’ organically into the narrative, so that history is presented in its most attractive format: as a story.
