We offer a range of services for schools, colleges and universities. We can supply copies of documents to support your delivery of key National Curriculum areas or specific projects.
We can provide free advice to teachers and individual pupils or students about the range of sources we hold to help your projects.
For primary schools, topics can include the Tudors, the Victorians, the Second World War, and local studies of your village or town.
For secondary schools we offer sessions and resources relevant to a range of subjects including linguistics (language change), history (eg. Cholera and public health, slavery, the Tudors, general documentary sources), archaeology (archaeological sources at the Somerset Heritage Centre), law and sociology (crime and punishment).
At further and higher education level we can tailor advice to meet your needs. Recent topics that we have covered include sources for archaeology, the Poor Law and palaeography (how to read old handwriting).
