Préparation agrégation anglais civilisation britannique 8
Le Royaume-Uni à l'épreuve de la crise 1970-79
As well as having a clear idea of the major events, debates and confusions of the 1970s in Britain, you do of course need to show a sense of context. This does not involve having an encyclopedic knowledge of British history. However, if, when speaking of Northern Ireland or of devolution or of constitutional questions in the 1970s, you can add a very brief comparison with an earlier era, examiners are bound to be impressed.
To help you revise your general knowledge of British history, you will find here a series of six one-hour lectures I gave a few years ago to first year university students. It is a whistlestop tour of "Britain since the Romans" in 6 hours.
