What historians have been arguing about...

Helping history teachers update their subject knowledge

This regular feature in Teaching History (TH) helps school history teachers to update their subject knowledge, with special emphasis on recent historiography and changing interpretations. (It was formerly titled 'Polychronicon', after a 14th-century chronicle that brought together the knowledge of its age).
