History resources - KS3 and Edexcel GCSE

I'm a secondary History teacher based in West Sussex. I've spent hours over the past few years creating and honing my lessons and resources and have now made them available online to hopefully help other teachers save time! Each lesson on here is self-contained and differentiated with all the required worksheets or resources included with the sale. The only exceptions are lessons including video that I do not own the copyright too but these are explained individually (if applicable).
