History Group
Our topic has a wide ranging title of REVOLUTION. We shall look at some of the turning points in History that have shaped the world in which we live. So far we have covered the C16 Religious Revolution, the Glorious Revolution of 1688 and we are now investigating the Scientific Revolution of the C17 and C18. This is proving fascinating, for the period is really an age of wonder – covering pioneers like Robert Hooke, William Harvey, Isaac Newton and Darwin. This era also saw the start of hot air ballooning.
Later we shall look at some of the great political revolutions such as the American break away from Britain, French, Russian and Chinese revolutions.
There is great scope for contributions, which are always welcomed.
