About Modern History

Modern History is about the shaping of the modern world. We explore the motivations and actions of individuals and groups that have defined history. We discover the major political, cultural, economic and social impact of their decisions, helping us to understand the complexity of life in 2021 and beyond.
We learn what it really means to make informed and educated decisions about the past, in order to make sense of the world around us today.
