Breakdown of the Roman Republic USB


This e-book has been written for the new QCAA Senior Ancient History syllabus and is organised for Contextual Study, Depth Study and Concluding Study.

This book is not meant to be an exhaustive examination of Roman politics in the 2nd and 3rd centuries BCE. It consists of primary source material chosen to highlight the main thread of the book’s theme, the use of violence in this period and the disintegration of law and order.

Studies of Political Systems. Athenian Democracy in 5th Century BCE


This booklet is a re-working of the earlier QHTA Athenian Democracy publication. While much of the material from the earlier unit is included here, its focus has been changed to suit the theme of Political Systems. The new book has been arranged to follow the QSA Ancient History syllabus requirements to incorporate the Aspects of Inquiry. There is also a deal of new material and most sections have been considerably expanded. A more expansive chapter on sources has been added.

Studies of Conflict – Harold v William 1066


This booklet is a source based inquiry into the conflict between King Harold of England and William of Normandy, culminating in the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The organisation of the material is based on the Aspects of Inquiry, as set out in the Queensland Ancient History Syllabus. There are sections on the background to the conflict, the nature of the conflict itself, the consequences of the conflict and the strengths and weaknesses of the available sources. Each Chapter has a wide range of primary sources and tasks for students based on the sources.
