Generally the history of British Empire has a very long time been the
foremost global power and full of interesting facts. With respects to the
history of Britain and it is culture more and more citizens of United
Kingdom don't know their past, historical events or just interested in
another things like sport or there own life. The research was conducted to
find out how many British people know about colonization and what they
think about colonization in future; will our generation face such thing.
The survey was conducted by asking residents of Cambridge city during the
week and weekend days. During the time of research our group tried to get a
lot of data and information about particular topic. Each member of the
group had work to do and everyone had his or her approach. Moreover, we
have produced ten questionnaires for each member of the group; therefore we
could get more useful and truthful information but I will talk about
methodology later on. After getting questionnaires fifty British people
were questioned from different ethnic and age groups. Soon we started
analyzing them by comparing with each other etc...
In general we have done what we planned.

Aims and objectives

The main reason that influenced our choice of topic was that we though it
would be exciting and complicated to investigate it. When we arrived in the
UK we did not even know so much about culture and history of Britain.
Personally I knew that Britain has very long history, such as independent
country, however I did not know so much information about culture. Our
topic is a very deep and interesting to investigate and discuss. Moreover,
we trough that if it was harder and more complicated to investigate it
would have a better result at the end, because we would give maximum effort
to finish our work with reasonable outcomes. Like everybody else we had
difficulties on our way, such a designing the questionnaires. It was quite
difficult to choose appropriate questions for respondents, so as not to
make them feel embarrassed, also I had a problem with investigating, in
other words it was quite complicated to choose the best data from the
source I used, because our topic was very specific and it was difficult to
recognize the main parts. The main aim of our project is to find opinions
people about the colonization and also to find what British people know
about it.

Literature review

I have used the book which is called "Last Post" it helps to understand
part of English history the book had information I needed, in other words
it explained role of colonies in Britain's history.


In our report first as a team we chose the topic with it we haven't any
difficulties. After choosing topic we start to construct the questionnaire
and think what we want to find and what sample will give for us. I thought
that questionnaire would give us clear and easy information to analyze, and
that we will not get confused with the data collected. In our research our
team had been in different places and asked a lot of people. I had been in
city center and it was very interesting for me what British people know and
think about colonization, because we live in 21st century and everybody is
interested in other issues such as the war in Iraq or global warming. The
respondents were surprised when I started to ask about colonization. In
general about methodology, I can say that all my respondents were very
happy to help me filling in questionnaires because they were relevant and
grammatically correct. The second method of research was, as I mentioned
above to use of book "Last Post". Basically the book helped to get the
information into my head, however I obtained from the idea with
questionnaires. In my findings I fully depended on the opinions of British

Finding and analysis

I asked many different age groups, one of them was from twenty to twenty
nine and other has from forty to forty nine years old. Obviously the
results were different, because the time is changing with its knowledge and
traditions. All of our respondents were British nationality except one of
the student's of Bellerbys College who was clear in his opinion and gave a
good answer. Overall we had twenty-three male and twenty-three female's
respondents. The graph below shows number of male and female.


About quarter of respondents were at the age between nineteen and twenty-
nine, also between forty and forty-nine, the other rest were between
