History Matters contains collections specifically written for primary schools. Learn about the world of Ancient Rome and the impact of the Romans on Britain, or the events and changes to life from the First World War.
Whether learning about Saxon and Norman England, or the Tudors and their government, find textbooks that are written specifically for the GCSE British Depth Studies courses.
Our libraries and collections provide significant further reading material, including important works such as the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, famous eye-witness accounts and well-known historical novels.
For primary and secondary schools, find books covering your curriculum content on our bookshelves. All of your students have access to all of the material at any time, on any device, so History Matters can be used as a portable digital library. The books themselves are designed to be digital-first, working equally well on interactive whiteboards, smartphones or any screen size in between, without the need to zoom in.
High quality illustrations, photographs and maps make learning more memorable. Great for teacher-driven instruction or for covering special topics, our presentations can potentially save hours of preparation time. Importantly, the presentations are written in such a way as to support a teacher at the front of the class, while being suitable and relevant for individual study by students at home. Our flexible animation engine brings the content to life in subtle, yet vivid, ways, adding to the explanation rather than serving as a distraction. Ultimately, any PC, tablet, or even the smartphone in your pocket is now a powerful teaching tool with History Matters.
Timelines offer an accessible way to examine how key moments and periods unfolded. They are intended to aid recall and understanding through the use of simple, yet engaging design, laying out the sequence of events in chronological order, with accompanying dates and precise descriptions of each. Highly visual, the timelines display neatly in portrait or landscape orientation.
