The British dominion of Menorca

Svietlana Hubina and I, Esther A. García Vez, made our paper about the British occupation of Menorca.

In this paper we wanted to explore the past history of Menorca as part of the British Empire. We found out that during the 18th century there were three periods of British dominion over the island, interrupted by French and Spanish occupations. Our paper deals with Menorca history in this period and its consequences for the island and its people. Besides, we have included some cultural features present in Menorca as a consequence of the British dominion.

Here is our digital story.

The Great Famine

As we saw in class on Friday Ireland, I am going to add  this video about Irish Famines, which is very easy to understand and related to what we are seeing in class. A different way to learn history! :)
