MA History part 1

This module aims to provide a foundation for studying local and regional history at an advanced level. You'll cover the key issues in the practice of local history within each of the four distinct 'nations' of the United Kingdom: England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The module then explores six key local history themes - poverty, crime and policing, the family, urban history, religion and industrialisation. Underpinning all of this is the development of your research skills. You will be shown how to begin a research project and how to find relevant sources using the growing number of online historical databases.
