New Curriculum

One of the advantages of the way our business operates is that we have spent many years building up an extensive collection of artefacts that can be used in a variety of ways.  So we don’t see changes to the curriculum as a major obstacle in being able to provide artefact boxes for most periods.

Boxes which are now available to cover the new topics:

• NEOLITHIC
• BRONZE AGE
• IRON AGE
• MAYAN
• CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

Many of our existing boxes can be adapted to suit the new curriculum. The best way to approach this is to contact us to discuss your particular needs.  To give examples of this, suggestions for covering turning points in British history would be:

• THE BATTLE OF HASTINGS
• SPANISH ARMADA
• ENGLISH CIVIL WAR
• WWI
• WWII

Suggestions for covering events commemorated through festivals or anniversaries:

• GUY FAWKES
• GREAT FIRE OF LONDON

Did You Know?

Glass was rare and expensive in Medieval and Tudor times and only churches or Royal palaces could afford glass windows. Wealthy noblemen and merchants used panes of polished horn which were cheaper and tougher and let in lots of light but were difficult to see through.
