Hi all,

I have been trying to find a concise list of all period and eras in English history that are important for the A-level English lit. syllabus Love through the Ages. It should ideally highlight all important social issues of the time etc. Does anyone know where to find something like this?

I have kind of put the below overview together from Wikipedia but don't know if it's correct. Also what is the difference between a period and an era?

Tudor period 1485–1603
Elizabethan era 1558–1603
Stuart period 1603–1714
Jacobean era 1603–1625
Caroline era / Carolean era 1625–1649
Interregnum period 1649–1660
Restoration 1660–1714
Georgian period 1714–1837
Regency (era) 1811–1837
Victorian period 1837–1901
Edwardian period 1901–1914
