Another History is Possible

The work shared here is the fruit of countless people’s labour – named and unnamed by the history books- and should be respected and valued as such. Nothing here is made for profit, all of it is intended to be shared, discussed, improved, and used with our young people to equip them with the tools to change the world.

About Me

I am a Head of History in a London community comprehensive secondary school (they still exist) with big aspirations and pretensions.

More about those pretensions here.


The burden of our history is great; the burden of our history-making is all the greater.

Thomas C. Holt (1995)

The ultimate mark of power may be its invisibility; the ultimate challenge, the exposition of its roots.”

race is colonialism speaking, in idioms whose diversity reflects the variety of unequal relationships into which Europeans have co-opted conquered populations.

Patrick Wolfe (2016)
