Extension / Homework activity: What’s in a name? What’s in a logo?
The events of 1857 have been described at different times in different ways by different people.
The Sepoy Mutiny | The Indian Mutiny | The Great Rebellion | The Revolt of 1857 | The Indian Insurrection | The First War of Independence
Students consider – perhaps after researching the proper definition of some of these terms – which they think is the most accurate. They then proceed to consider the evolution of a famous company logo and consider what this tells us about changing attitudes to Empire.
