    Hey Guys, i'm writing a history essay which has to be of university/degree standard. Im currently in upper sixth so I haven't a clue what i'm doing! Basically, if I have a really long source I want to include, how do I go about putting it in?

    Is it okay to do this (as an example):


    The might of Elizabeth was one of the main reasons why she ruled for such a long time, as Robert Dudley expresses:

    '....fdfhdslfsdnhfkjdsnfsdkjnfsd ljgnsdgkjsdngskjgnsgjsng
    asifjasofkhasflkansfojanfajfnakj fndjfndofhdofhjdofdnhojd
    faafhafknafnaflndfladfn...'


    If this is the standard way of doing it, do I then need to footnote it?

    Please help! I'm at a loss of what to do!

    We're told to embed our quotes more for example "the might of Elizabeth is one of the main reasons she ruled for such a long period as "quote" and then footnote it to the historian. But I think you can do it both ways. Is this coursework by any chance????

    As I'm doing my history coursework at the moment and it has to be university standard.....

    That'll work too. The idea is just to make it more streamlined, so you don't want it to be as 'clunky' as normal.


    Btw, it's Aberystwyth
