History From Below

I was looking for something else the other day and chanced upon this. It's not often you find something that is worth using in the classroom but this is a prime example of what I and many other teachers would love to see more of. It's a shame it's not an English Civil War musketeer or pikeman but, if I had the leeway to squeeze in the ACW, I'd be at it like a shot.
Sorry to wander off topic again...but I think it's more than worth it.

  1. I can't for the life of me understand why more living history/re-enactment societies aren't doing this sort of thing... or even offering 'teaching packs' for a small nominal sum.

    Kids really relate to 'seeing' along with listening and most classrooms have the facility to utilise stuff like this in lessons nowadays.
