It's intended to put the research on a website which will be promoted directly to thousands of schools.  Royal Holloway will create two MOOCs linked to Citizens - 'Votes for Women' in Feb.2018 and 'Peterloo to the Pankhursts' in Aug 2019.
NotesThis will be a three year project starting from the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. Within the umbrella project, Citizens, there will be a programme of Shared Learning Projects.
