Henry VIII and English Reformation

Complete notes (basically like a textbook) for AS students. It is written as a chronological account, building in key debates. The reason for chronological rather than thematic focus is because the course has been taught in discrete sections and this is designed to bring it all together. It is not the final, proofed draft and some of the footnoting still needs to be done, but I thought I would upload it in case anyone finds it useful for the imminent exams. I'll post a revised copy when it is complete.

In the first version, the story is broken down into two halves to make it more accessible. Students should link the white boxes first and then try and link the dark boxes and join the two halves of the story together. The 2nd version is more complex as no indication of chronology is provided. the third version is more complex still as vital parts of the story are removed.
