Human Geography case studies

Inludes all of the case studies needed for the GCSE geography paper 2 human paper. They may not all be the case studies that you are using. I have tried not to create an information overload beause these need to be remembered in the exam so I have stuck to a maximum of  10 points for each case study, including specific data which allows you to access the top marks.
