This is the second lesson of a new unit about the Age of Revolutions. In this lesson we will find out about what it was like to live in a time with so many new and exciting ideas. Questions we will try to answer include: how were these ideas spread? Which groups of people were affected by the ideas? This lesson focuses on what was happening in eighteenth century Paris as it was the centre of Enlightenment thought at the time.
