School History
The best free site for History teachers by far is the School History Site. It contains plenty of downloadable resources and lots, lots more.
School History Forum
This is the History teachers' discussion forum - discuss issues, ask for help or just have a chat.

The Learning Curve
Learning Curve is the website of the National Archives. It is a free online teaching and learning resource, following the History National Curriculum from Key Stages 2 to 5. It contains:

The website also has a teacher's guide that can be download. (Learning Curve Teacher's guide included on CD) It explains how to make the best use of the sources, teaching ideas and new technology on the website. (written by Ben Walsh, a History teacher!)

Spartacus Educational
The Spartacus Educational website provides a series of history encyclopaedias. Entries usually include a narrative, illustrations and primary sources. Titles currently include:


It is possible to use this site to research individual people and events in great detail. The sources are also hyper-linked so the student is able to find out about the writer, artist, newspaper and organization that produced the material.

Greenfield Modern World History:
John D. Clare's website includes topic mini-books on:

The website also contains coursework materials on Haig and Votes for Women. The texts are available as Microsoft Word files, for users to download and print as they want. The website also features Exemplar Essays on some 30 topics, each starting with a 150-word summary, and then offering an 'unpacked' version of around 400 words. An excellent resource from a History teacher and textbook author.


British Pathe news Clips

(Free downloads to Oxfordshire schools when you connect to the site through your school network)
The British Pathe archive is perhaps the world's most famous newsreel collection. Spanning the period 1896-1970, the collection comprises 3,500 hours and contains some of the most iconic images ever caught on camera. The entire archive has been remastered and fully digitised. It is now possible to view every second of this outstanding collection online through this web site and there is absolutely no charge for this facility. If you have the software, you could download news clips and edit them or have pupils edit them themselves.

History.uk.com
The world's largest free-to-use database of British history was launched in September 2002. History.uk.com features a timeline of UK history spanning from 1000 BC to the present day as well as a live feed covering the latest history news. The directory, which took six years to research, boasts more than 25,000 historical places, facts, archives and resources. Users will also be able to access knowledge about their local history or family tree.
