Take a trip through the Victorian world with Colonel Edward Theophilus Morgan. Retd.,
Let the Colonel be your guide as he talks to the class about this great time of change, using period artefacts and costume to illustrate the topics covered. Should the class wish, The Major is happy to debate with the youngsters, who may have very different views to his Victorian ideas. This is a great opportunity for the class to challenge the major and even disagree with him! This really gets the class thinking and allows them to look at history from many different perspectives.
From 60 minutes to a whole day of Victorian studies. The students will learn all about the lives and times of the Victorians. Below is a selection of the topics covered.
Transport and Communication Education
