I am interested in British History and have been researching the British Empire. The history of the British Empire is one of violence and oppression and yet 24% of British people believe we should still have an empire. The history of the British Empire should be better taught in schools and better understood by all.
We cannot understand where we are without understanding where we have been. Understanding our past is key to better treatment of British people descended from former colonies and key to embracing and further developing our multi-cultural society. For my Masters project, I researched our history and developed this work to express my thoughts.
