History's Heroes

This is a site about heroes. Not super-heroes - you won't find Batman here, nor the Incredible Hulk. But you'll find people who really did exist - people who made their mark on history. But what sort of people were they? Make up your own mind...

This site contains a huge amount of information about certain people - "heroes" - in history: not just about their lives and achievements, but also about their backgrounds and the times in which they lived.

The teaching ideas in this encourage pupils to explore this information in a focussed and purposeful way. The Ideas guide them to ponder some important questions about values and motives, in relation to both the historical figures and, more profoundly, to themselves.
