"Study history, study history. In history lies all the secrets of statecraft."

-Winston Churchill

History is the study of everything that humans have recorded, whether it be the chronicle of a bloody revolution, or the diary of a woman in RenaissanceFlorence. But no matter whether you want to study ancient history, modern history, or something in between, most university-level history work requires the same skill set. Historians have to be able to wade through piles of books and letters, find a connecting idea, and write it down in a compelling way.

That's no easy task, especially when you're expected to write quickly. So whether you need to prepare for the deluge, or just keep your head above water, Marked by Teachers' collection of teacher-marked history papers are your lifeboat. Before you write, come here to read, examine, and learn. You'll soon gain a teacher's critical eye, and you'll know how to best write and edit your own papers.

After you finish your degree, you might continue on to become an academic historian, or do a higher degree in a related field like art history.Alternately, you might leave academia in favor of careers in politics, law, teaching or business.


Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • To what extent can Wolsey be considered the master rather than the servant in policy decisions under Henry VIII

    "In order to answer the question of whether Wolsey was the master or the servant in policy decisions under Henry VIII, this essay has shown that although Wolsey demonstrated great skill in administration and was an exceptionally hard worker, Henry VIII was still in overall charge. Wolsey could be seen to be a sycophant, courting favour with the King in order to further his own wealth and career. During the early years of Henry's reign, it is possible that Wolsey could be seen as the master, purely because the youthful Henry was caught up in more amusing affairs. However, Henry always devised policy but left Wolsey to carry it out. Henry recognised Wolsey's abilities and utilised them, but whilst Henry could easily remove Wolsey, Wolsey as a servant of the King was not able to remove Henry. In conclusion, the evidence suggests that Henry VIII and Wolsey formed an effective partnership, but Wolsey was always Henry's servant."

  • "On balance the Greek communists have only themselves to blame for loosing the Greek Civil War" Discuss

    "In conclusion the defeat of the communists in Greece's Civil War, was due to a wide variety of issues and events. Although the communists in Greece proved to be somewhat unorganized and ineffective, factors such as EAM, and especially the impact of outside forces such as Yugoslavia, Britain and the United States all played a very significant role in the outcome of the Civil War. The Greek Civil War proved to be extremely complex and diverse making it almost impossible to generalize and argue that the communists had only themselves to blame for loosing the Greek Civil War. 1"

  • Public Health In Rome. To what extent was the Roman period an age of progress in public health?

    "Conclusion The Roman age was a period of vast progress in public health. They began with similar ideas and technology to the Ancient Greeks, and developed systems of clean water, sanitation, and hygiene that are still in use today. As a result of this progress, the general health of the Roman people improved, but more so for the army and the rich. The theories and methods of those such as Galen dominated medical practice for over 1500 years."
