This series of lessons covers the fourth depth study: Nearly Losing and Empire: The British in India 1829 - 58.

The lesson is ready to teach and includes all worksheets and sources. The lessons refer to the textbook "Britain: Losing and gaining and Empire, 1763 - 1914" (Christie, 2016 Pearson) although other textbooks could be used with the lessons.
