English: British Culture Project
posted by Anonymous .
For my English class, I received a British culture research project and the objective is to learn about the British culture from 449-1950. The instructions say choose a topic from one of the 14 general topics listed below. Research your topic. Develop a thesis. You must do one of the following: 1) analyze or 2) compare & contrast. Present the findings from your research in a 3-to-5 minute auditory presentation with visual effects.
I am having trouble finding any information on the following topics from 449-1950:
1. Governmental structure
6. Maps, territories, topographies
7. Family structure
12. Educational system
I do not know what topic I am doing yet and I was wondering if anybody could find a website about any of these topics for British culture from 449-1950.
I suggest you start by reading about British history in an encyclopedia -- perhaps in these web sites.
Those articles will give you an overview of governmental structure, religion, and wars.
If you want to research another topic, go to Google and search for Britain food history or Britain education history -- or whatever you'd like to research.
This site will give you general information, including spans of time of different identifiable periods, e.g., Anglo-Saxon England, Middle Ages, etc. There's also a timeline here.
Be sure to use the links in this article and/or search here and/or in Google for various topics to see which ones interest you most. Also be sure to check on the sections at the end of this webpage: See Also, Further Reading, External Links.
For further searches you can use key words such as these to get started:
demographics anglo-saxon england
myths legends anglo-saxon england
arts england 1914-1918
Please re-post if you have more questions and if you decide what you want to focus on but have trouble finding information.
