WE’VE GOT HISTORY SORTED

It’s time to get your pupils out of the classroom for a unique and memorable learning experience at the Royal Armouries.

Tailored to meet the demands of the new History curriculum our sessions will enhance the study of key periods and chronology.

Many of the old favourites such as the Tudors, English Civil Wars and trench warfare are still available but we have introduced several exciting new sessions for key stages 1 to 3 and study days for GCSE History students.

We have designed our sessions to provide a more interactive and hands on experience for pupils allowing history to come life in an exciting and meaningful way.

Sessions will take place in our dedicated education centres and in the museum galleries amongst the collection pieces.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students.

Thunder birds are go!

Artillery pieces before about 1700 were often classified by names. A rare type of very big gun was known as a basilisk, a more common long powerful gun was known as a culverin while smaller versions were named after birds of prey such as saker and falcon.
