The British Empire



   Description A clear and well designed site with a wide range of detail relating to the British Empire.  A worthy starting point!
Growth of the British Empire From the Victorian Web, a list of resources relevant to the British Empire.  The text in the linked articles will require further explanation.
The East India Company This site is dedicated to the East India Company, illustrating its importance in the development of world trade.  Useful for research or in-depth work. 
'The sun never sets' A different type of site from others listed here.  It explains why the sun never set on the British Empire, and then provides a brief summary of the Empire up to the present day.
An overview of the British Empire Again from the Victorian Web, this link presents an overview of the British Empire.  Pupils can find out information about different countries that were once members.
Timeline of British Empire From, this page links to three splendidly detailed timelines, for 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries.  Extremely valuable for putting events in context.  Fantastic!
