Documentary extracts, HIS211

This page provides you with links to the main four documentary extracts and some suggested reading. Each page will contain a number of separate topics. You should all write a two page or thereabouts report on one of the topics in each subject.
Usually the topics will take the form of a document and a couple of secondary references. You should summarise the document/s and place it/them in the context of the relevant secondary references. Everybody should write four document reports. The best three will be averaged out and count as one essay equivalent.
Note: that these pages are accessible only from the Newcastle Campus. However, if you email from a remote site, I will arrange to give you access over the holidays. E-mail:
