For some, becoming more interested in history may be somewhat of an uphill battle. Sometimes it may be due to preconceived notions about the way the subject was presented when they were young, and others may find the material a bit dry. This website offered by the BBC presents a variety of historical perspectives that are both engaging and informative, and as such, the site is well worth a look. The various sections address such powerful themes as "Church and State", "Victorian Britain", and "Conquest", which affords visitors the opportunity to learn about the nature of the Norman invasion in 1066. The "Local History" section is quite helpful as it teaches visitors how to explore their own communities through historical clues, documents, and visual evidence. Each section contains brief articles, activities, and quizzes that help flesh out the material.
