Hey! Anyone know what topics were assessed last year in Anglo Saxon/Norman England and American West? Any predictions would be nice too.

Many thanks!
The 8 mark consequence question was abt new farming methods
The 8 mark narrative was on the Transcontinental Railroad
The 8 mark importance were
Horses for Plains Indians
Battle of Little Bighorn for gvt policies
John Illif for ranching

4 mark was career of Bishop Odo
12 mark was Harrying of the North
16 markers were
Battle of Hastings
William introducing the ‘forest’
As for predictions for AW
I have a feeling the narrative may be Donner Party
Wounded Knee massacre hasn’t come up so very likely
Gvt policies to Plains Indians

Normans and Anglo Saxon:
Harold Godwinson’s embassy to Normandy
Rebellions in the North (Anglo Danish attack on York / Death of Robert Cumin / Hereward the Wake)
I would definitely look over this as it has never come up and is easy to mix up with other revolts
Hope this helps

Hi!
Thanks for the response.
Would the question about Harold’s embassy be a 4 marker or do you think it would be worth more? I can’t think of much to write about it.

Probably a 4 marker. I could see it being maybe part of a 16 marker about claims to the throne (for William). But more likely just a 4
