Citizens: 800 years in the making

Project: Other


Citizens is a three year Heritage Lottery Fund supported project led by Royal Holloway, University of London.

Working with partners and supporting organisations including the AQA exam board, The National Archives, the People's History Museum, the UK Parliament, History of Parliament and the Historical Association, the project aims to help school and college students gain a better understanding of the development of the relationship between the citizen and the state in Britain over the last 800 years.

By charting the journey from feudalism and serfdom to democracy and equality, the project will reveal how, in different periods, the state has responded to challenges to its authority and how change was brought about.

In so doing, the project will help students to construct an understanding of their rights and responsibilities of the citizen both in the past and present.
