Amandeep travels 400 years back in time to find out about the English Civil War. She finds out how the war was fought – and who won it!

Watch the video. Then go to Task and do the activities. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.



I know nothing about English Civil War. Most of things I've learnt about England is throw historical movies like "The Vikings", "Robin Hood", "Ivanohe", "Jane of Arc"....
I think the most important event in French History is the French Revolution , in 1789, and its famous declaration of human rights. But there are many more.

I think, I heard or read something about English Civil War from somewhere but I have no enough information, unfortunately. We have lots of important historical events in our history. But I think the most important ones were Independence War (1919-1923) and foundation of Republic of Turkey by Atatürk (1923)

I don't know about the English Civil War
The most important historic event for Turkey was the Independence War from 1919 to 1923

I wish I could studying VN history like this way

British people have very different traditions. And I know nothing about the English Civil War before watching this video. Very informative video.

It was really interesting.

Hello Salahjoon,

We are making new videos available in this way, but it is difficult to do it with older pages. Perhaps we will be able to do this in the future but I cannot promise!

Best wishes,
