Document Test Tuesday Week 18

Today (20/6) I distributed the document pack for the test tomorrow. You are permitted to make notes on the document pack and bring it into the test. In addition, you are allowed to bring in one on-sided A4 page of notes. In class today, we read through and discussed each document. Use Bradley (Chapters 13 - 15) to ensure you understand what each document means and why it is significant. You should take note of Bradley's comments on the reliability of each of the sources.
