Home Front Legacy Young Person’s Resources Launch
We are proud to announce the launch of our new action-packed resources for youth groups, schools and families; designed to inspire the next generation of archaeologists and encourage participation in the UK wide Home Front Legacy 1914-18 project.
Our resources include-
Illustrated Home Front Panoramas:
These panoramas by highly acclaimed cartoonist Dave Chisholm depict aspects of Home Front life on land, in the air and at sea. The buildings, military activity and people going about their day-to-day business are based on real places and events that formed part of the Home Front story.
Clue Cards, Historic photo cards, Character cards and Story cards:
These cards enable your group to research and investigate the First World War Home Front. They can be used with our illustrated Home Front panoramas to:
- discover the stories of people on the Home Front;
- investigate the vast array of sites that can be found;
- and learn about the many events that occurred during this period.
A suite of seven Session Plans:
Home Front Legacy Training Videos:
These engaging films produced by young people, for young people set out to share the basics of site recording for the Home Front Legacy project.
