Learning resources

These self-contained resources offer guided learning on particular themes. They are based around full-size digital images of original documents. Each resource also includes commentaries and supporting material.

The resources are suitable for A-level, further and higher education students and lifelong learners. Two of the resources have been used as the basis for Schools Resources suitable for Key Stage 3 and GCSE students.
