1/ Who fought the Crimean War and why did it start?
2/ Summarise the main developments in weaponry in this period
3/ Summarise the main technological developments in the period
4/ How did the developments in these areas affect the way the war was fought and its outcome?
5/ In what ways did the developments in weaponry and technology affect the nature of war away from the battlefield?
Don't worry about a detailed summary of the siege of Sebastopol or the battle of Balaklava - we will look at these in more detail when we come back after half term.
