Yeh, I did Pericles too. I had no idea what year he actually died and so i didnt know whether it was better to risk making up a year or completely avoid putting down a year...hmm... it was alright though, im just glasd they didnt ask for a modern or ancient source interpretation.

i did alexander and the questions were nice. for a) i talked about before he actually became king of macedonia at the battle of granicus and some other ramble. for B) i talked about treatment of pple he met like how he slaughtered tyre and gaza but loved the egyptians because they welcomed him. for c) i thought it was pretty sweet question u could just talk about how good he was. i even had a quote for his greatness which was sweet.
and i just slammed quote after quote, some i just made up, some i couldnt even remeber who they were by but i just made it up! overall the question was good , expect this part to get good marks but ill get dragged down in his periods.

But bradley still has a view/opinion?

What constitutes a "proper historian" and why wouldnt blradley's interpretation of history be any less valid?
Exactly. Plus, what differentiates a historian from someone who writes about history? They still have to do their research. Most historians end up writing about their topic anyway. Bradley's fine.

Totally forgot Redford. Oh well.
