As part of ‘Finding the Future’, we have produced two series of vodcasts entitled ‘Shaking Hands with the Past’ specifically for our learning audience. Each of these presentations features one of our unique artefacts and explains their use, construction and history in easily understood terms and with the help of a friendly Viking or medieval resident of York! These vodcasts can be used by teachers and Home Educators to help bring history alive.
Alongside the videos, download the Curator’s Diary activity booklet to get children thinking about what they learn. Educators can follow this guide to help with these activities.
