Empire is a major five-part series telling the story of the British Empire in a new way, tracing not only the rise and fall of the Empire but also the complex effects of the Empire on the modern world – political, technological and social – and on Britain.
Members of the Empire: 1492-1975 (A326) module team assisted in the preparation of the series and some of the content and activities associated with it. Karl Hack, A326 chair, wrote the text for the free wallchart to accompany the series. RSVP Empire, an interactive Empire themed activity, was written by A326 Associate Lecturer, John Kirkaldy.
