Hi. I'm holding a post-A level offer for History at Oxford, and I'm keen to get ahead with some of the reading. Can anyone give me the reading lists for the below four modules (all first year)? Or can anyone tell me about what kind of essays you're set for these modules, what they're like, the main topics for each one?

History of the British Isles 4 - 1500-1700
European and World History 1 - 370-900
Historical Methods - Historiography
Revolution and Empire in France 1789-1815

If it helps, my offer is from LMH. All help is appreciated, thanks

Essays set depend on the college (and I can't speak for LMH). The faculty website lists the general (varied) approach of each paper so I would consult that. Reading before the course is not essential but it may be useful. It would make sense to begin with methods and British history (studied in term 1). Tutors may be in touch to provide a reading list but probably only in August. Until then, I would recommend reading what you interests you about the periods.
