Hodder History: Crown & Country, Britain 1500-1750 by Martyn J. Whittock


Hodder History: Crown & Country, Britain 1500-1750 by Martyn J. Whittock

This is an exciting Key Stage 3 resource for teaching and learning about the issues and events that characterize Tudor, Stuart and early 18th century Britain. It never lets go of the period's story, providing opportunities to examine the big picture and investigate particular topics. Discover which English king was killed by a mole, the year when bagpipes were classified as an 'offensive weapon' and a piper was sent to prison for playing them, and which English monarch's body exploded while awaiting burial.


The differentiated textbooks are a huge selling point for those teaching a broad-ability range. The support materials are creative and varied and will easily maintain interest. Times Educational Supplement Excellent. This series has now become the mainstay of the department. Teachers feel very positive about using the series as a teaching resource. Mr Dashley, Earlham County High School
