BBC Online History: Understanding your ancestors is more than just having the dates and places of the major events in their lives. You also need to understand the world in which they lived. Part of that is geography: the valleys, rivers, roads, and political boundaries of the places where they lived. There is also a cultural setting. What were the religious, economic and political climates like in the place time where your ancestor lived? You can (and should) study those factors. But you can also use a quick reference to guide you when the inevitable questions arise. In your your ancestors were British, this website can help. They have placed a useful and easily used summary of British history on this site.
