In GCSE History students will be taught about warfare in Britain during different eras. One period they will look at is that of the Renaissance, which saw the development of firearms.
The Renaissance saw many advances in science and technology. It took place between the late 14th century and the end of the 17th. Warfare in Britain changed hugely between these two dates: new firearms emerged to replace bows and arrows, and recruitment methods altered also. The first professional armies appeared, forces that were paid throughout the year.
