Whigs vs Revisionists

28 April 2017


Year 8’s in Miss Kevis’ History class divided into Whig historians and Revisionist historians in their lesson today to debate the question ‘Did life get better between 1509 to 1745?’


The Whigs (complete with wigs) argued for the motion that life did indeed improve but the glasses wearing Revisionist’s argument, that life in fact got worse, was carried by 18 votes to 1.
