    Don't know where to post this, but seeing as you're all History buffs you might be able to make sense of it!

    Basically, I'm quite interested in the Ancient and Early Kings of England, and I got this list off the internet ages ago where it lists the kings of Wessex, Mercia, Kent, East Anglia, Essex, and Northumbria (which is sub divided into Deira and Bernica)

    Why was Northumbria subdivided, and how did these two get their nams? Where is Merica? And by 954 AD some one called 'King Eadwig' was the first one to be rulling all of the counties - what did he do that let him do this?

    Alternatively, can anyone recommend a textbook about ancient royalty?

    you should look at the ancient history and medieval book club website
    www.ancienthistory.co.uk
    dont know about textbooks but they have plenty of litrature on ancient royalty

    It's very hard to get work experience related to History, like I told you and it might not be worth it, better to look in a different field, like Charlord did, journalism for example.

    Well, the point is to meet people who share the same interest and discuss historical topics

    Since there are some other subject societies about, I thought it would be fitting to have a UKL History Society. I know a few people will be interested, so if you want to join, please reply or pm me. Everyone who's interested in History is welcome, not just those studying it at school or at university.
    Hey, count me in, I'll gladly join. I love history.. expecially greek and egyptian. Add me to your soc.. I'd love to learn from so many knowledgeable people.

    I was watching something on tv a while ago! I think it was Terry Jones' medieval history or something and he was on about the fact that we had a French king who conquered England for about a year. I was wondering if anyone studying history at uni could tell me more about what actually happened because it seems fascinating.

    Thanks

    If no one answers you, do a google or a dogpile search. If that is indeed true, you're bound to find something about it on the internet.

    Was this king's name Louis I.? In my history book it says that Louis I., called Le Pieux (the devout) did not conquer any land... he ruled the kingdom of Aquitaine and lived between 778-840 AD.

    Could you give us a rough time frame?

    what question would be a good one to pose on the French Rev. as i haven't studied this subject at all just thought it would be interesting as i have never done it.
    what about one that draws on more socio-cultural approaches to the french revolution as this would show some originality to the assessor. how about something on the disperate and changing (re)conceptualisations of concepts such as class, power and nation. Or how about something on the seularisation of political culture during the revolution? or something on the visual lexicon and imagery used to represent the republic and how these invited and yet constrained how people interpreted the revolution?

    erm actually just thought, is this for university or before? i may have been a bit premature in my answer! sorry
