Teaching history through objects: the mobility of objects across boundaries 1000–1700
Katherine Wilson and Michael Bird
University of Chester
This workshop will explore how using authentic historical artefacts with pupils can create engaging, unique and insightful learning opportunities, grounded in an evidential and experiential approach to ‘doing history’. It will reflect on the success of a research network that brought together educators, academics, museum curators and trainee teachers to take medieval and early modern objects from the Grosvenor Museum, Chester into schools.
