People and Places

Module code: HS1100 (double module)

An individual’s environment is of the upmost importance in order to contextualise and understand their life, making it almost impossible to untangle people and places. You’ll be investigating the significance of a particular historical individual or place, and the relationship between them. While undertaking your research you'll use sources creatively to support your argument and theories, while broadening your knowledge on your chosen subject.
