Bringing History closer to Home
You don’t have to travel to the Front Line to explore the impact of the First World War. From the many headstones found in churchyards the length and breadth of the country, to the various museums and trench systems and memorials, its legacy is all around us.
Anglia’s Local Heroes programme provides you with a wonderful opportunity to explore this legacy close to home and to examine the war’s impact on communities across the UK. It also affords students a chance to develop the research skills they need as future historians and a chance for everyone to remember the sacrifices made by a generation.
Our 1-day itinerary is designed to be delivered within the parameters of a normal school day. It includes:
With regional options covering much of the country, this really is the ideal way to encourage your students to engage with their local history.
