This text examines events in British history from the Norman Conquest to the Wars of the Roses and the Tudor accession. Mysteries, including the death of the two princes and the death of William Rufus, promote pupils' analytical skills through evidence, historical interpretations and imaginative exercise sections. This title also introduces pupils to the key issues of everyday people's lives through to kingship, the Church, the development of warfare and the Crusades. The book is part of a series which covers British history from the earliest times through to the 20th century. Extensive use is made of contemporary illustrative sources and written evidence, and graded questions based on the text and evidence are also included to test pupils' historical skills.
