Our aim in the History Department at Beths is to connect modern day life to past events. We also aim to analyse past events to provide context to modern day situations, borders and tensions. Our final objective is to learn from the successes of the past to continue and celebrate them, whilst at the same time, avoiding the mistakes made in the past to try not to make them again.
