The odd thing is that Sharlene knows more about British history than I do. When I was in school we tended to look at one particular period, whereas Sharlene did British History as an overview - so she covered a lot more area.
Plus the fact that we had the worst history teacher ever! All he ever did during lessons was dictate pages and pages of stuff. I'm not even sure what period we were learning about - possibly The War of the Roses. All I do know is that I learned nothing.
I have learned a lot more since school and love history. It annoys the hell out of me that a bad teacher should destroy an interesting subject.
