      The ones that come up the most are the archaeologist at work, a named Renaissance scientist or writer and Operation Barbarossa they are the main ones I would learn if I were you! And they are the main ones that come up! Hope that helped! :)

      Operation Barbarossa is a good bit off yet. It's basically the code name for Nazi Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II, which began on 22 June 1941.

      Do you need to know both a Renaissance writer and scientist or just one?

      Well you need to know both a renaissance writer and scientist but you only need to pick one either a writer or scientist for the question :)

      ^ like belle said 10 points!

      Make sure they are relevant and factual! One fact for every two marks, thus:

      If it says 10 marks, then 5 relevant historical facts

      If it says 20 marks, then 10 relevant historical facts

      ok thank you so it doesn't matter what length it is i.e a page long?

      No, just look at the marks and remember to have one fact for every two facts! There is no harm though putting in more facts than the marks tell you to

      Put each fact into small little words or detail in points and then when doing a past exam question OR your actual exams, you can make them into full sentences.
