Welcome to Mr Allsop History . com

My NEW book of daily historical accounts, Another 366 Days, is now available to purchase from Amazon.

The original 366 Daysis still in print and available here.

Mr Allsop History . com is a FREE History revision website containing GCSE History revision, IGCSE History revision, A Level History revision and IB Diploma History revision podcasts and videos.

It is regularly updated with new episodes of my popular GCSE History revision podcasts, IGCSE History revision podcasts and revision PowerPoints.  To automatically receive new episodes when they are created you can subscribe in iTunes or by using the RSS feed.  There are also a range of IB Diploma History revision podcasts and AS/A2 (A Level) History revision podcasts for students studying 19th and 20th Century European History.  For automatic updates to these you can subscribe in iTunes or use the RSS feed.

You could also join the Facebook page to receive updates when new History revision podcasts and resources are added.

Elsewhere on the site you will find the music video I produced to accompany Billy Joel’s song We Didn’t Start the Fire.  Suggestions on how history teachers might incorporate the song and video into a lesson sequence on historical significance can be found here.

I also write and host a daily ‘on this day in history’ podcast at www.HistoryPod.net. I’ve created hundreds of 2-3 minute long podcasts covering a whole range of historical periods and events. Those that relate to the history revision topics on this website are also linked to directly.

Everything on this History revision website is FREE to download so please let your history students, friends or teachers know about it!  If you would like to include links to any of the GCSE, IGCSE, A Level or IB History revision resources on your own website, please direct your visitors to www.mrallsophistory.com.

    Your podcast are brilliant and have been very useful. Had a question i wanted to ask when answering a part c question in a paper 1 igcse exam how many paragraphs should your preferably have to provide a balance argument?

    • Mr Allsop says:

      You need two arguments on each side to secure up to 9 marks – add a fully supported conclusion to that if you are aiming for the full 10. So you are really aiming for 4 main body paragraphs plus a fifth which is the conclusion.

    Just had a quick view of your Youtube History Pod on Thomas Stevens who was the first to cycle round the world on a pennyfarthing. I am a volunteer writer for our Northern Cross Roman Catholic newspaper and am doing a series on bikes. I saw the reference to T Stevens in a Christmas present book by Johan Tell, ‘En Cyclo Pedia’ under ‘A’ for adventure. On page 15 under ‘A’ for attitude he tells of newspaper adverts in the USA for revolvers as the ‘Cyclist’s Friend’ so cyclists could defend themselves against aggressive motorists. May I quote from your History Pod on Stevens?

    Hello, your website is absolutely filled with amazing resources! I am currently doing my PGCE year and your website is just amazing! I have seen the ‘Significance Tournament’ that you have done and I was just wondering if you could direct me to a template, it looks like a great activity! Many thanks.

    Hi, I adore your videos and they’ve helped me so much. I’m currently in my first year of A-levels and I was wondering if you do anything on the origins of WW1? Thank you for everything!

    Thank you for the summarized revision questions and answers Mr. Allsop… It was of colossal help!

  14. DC says:

    Your podcasts are so great for revision for IGCSE Paper 1 & 2, thank you so much! I was wondering if you could put your podcasts on Spotify (as I’ll be studying history for A-Levels too)?

    • Mr Allsop says:

      Thanks for your message. I have submitted my podcasts to Spotify, but they manually curate and approve submissions so I’m not sure if/when they might appear on the platform.
