About the workshop

This skills-based workshop introduces your students to a wide range of primary sources and encourages them to examine them in detail and questions about them.

For GCSE and A-level students, it may be possible to tailor the session so that the sources used are relevant to their examination syllabus e.g. GCSE: Health and the People, A-Level: Britain 1900-51.

Suitable for: Key Stages 2, 3, 4 and 5
Subjects: History
Duration: 1 hour (we would recommend combining this session with our Introduction to Special Collections to make a half a day visit)
Availability: Limited dates throughout the year
