Change and Continuity
This resource covers the key skill of analysing CHANGE AND CONTINUITY as used in several topics, including:
- Crime and Punishment
- Health and Medicine
- Changes in Warfare
In studying history, historians recognise things that may change or remain the same over time. This concept is known as change and continuity. Parts of the past that remained the same or relatively unchanged over time are called continuities, while those that did not stay the same are referred to as changes. This historical concept is commonly used when evaluating different civilisations and time periods.
Evaluating change and continuity of an aspect of history is done by either (A) comparing points in the past with the present, or (B) comparing two points in the past.
At the end of the module, students should be able to:
- Understand change and continuity as a historical key skill;
- Be familiar with the common factors to consider in analysing change and continuity; and
- Use this key skill when evaluating thematic and period studies
- Change and continuity as a historical key skill
