Dave and I have been involved with living history for over 30 years. I have been running History Boxes for the last 16 years. Our own 2 children have had a wonderful opportunity to study history with a real hands on approach.
Seeing their enjoyment of this unique learning experience has helped us to develop this service. Our eldest, Helen is currently working as a teacher and of course using the resources.
Running the hugely successful living history project at Murton Park near York has given Dave a wealth of knowledge and expertise in meeting teacher’s requirements and providing living history education.
In fact the idea for the history boxes was customer led in that teachers were asking for artefacts that they could use in the classroom.
