HOME EDUCATION HISTORY AND ARCHAEOLOGY RESOURCES

Are you a home educator looking for some engaging, thought-provoking and refreshingly alternative history and archaeology resources? If so, our resources, which will take you from the mysterious depths of the sea to the prehistoric plains of Europe, let you explore forgotten maritime history, and even get you out and about on a walking tour of Southampton, could be just what you are looking for.

Or perhaps you are part of a home education group? We can visit your group for facilitated sessions on a range of topics, from prehistory to the world wars. Flexible, hands-on and suitable for all ages, our sessions offer a dynamic and exciting way to engage with heritage and archaeology. Please email jns@maritimearchaeologytrust.org for more information or to discuss your requirements.

Please explore our home education resources below and do get in touch if there is anything you would like to discuss with us.

D-DAY EDUCATION PACK AND WALKING TOUR

Our D-Day education pack offers a riveting and personal account of some of the 3.5 million troops who, after inscribing their names in graffiti-like fashion on a brick wall, embarked from Southampton on their way to the Normandy beaches. Our pack includes information about the D-Day Wall, its context, and the names upon it, with suggested activities for studying the wall and finding out more. This project can be tied to the National Curriculum at all levels, including History Key Stages 1, 2 and 3.
Fancy stepping back in time (literally) with our walking tour of Southampton? Visit the D-Day Wall along with a number of other sites across the City where plaques and memorials commemorate its Second World War heritage. Our tour pack comes complete with a map and instructions on how to find each location. This is an excellent opportunity to get outdoors and explore history in a fun and engaging way.

ACTIVITY BOOK AND WORKSHEETS

Our Activity Book is an interactive exploration of maritime archaeology, which includes pictures, fun facts, games and puzzles centred around the work of archaeologists who work with water. It also includes our Maritime Timeline, which outlines key dates from 8500 BC to today and is a great resource for discovering significant maritime events throughout history.
We also have a number of worksheets exploring further maritime archaeology themes that are free to download.

ONLINE INTERACTIVES AND 3D MODELS

We have a number of marine-themed interactives that you may wish to explore, including maps, site viewers and virtual dives. These online resources don’t require any specialist software to run and have been designed with user experience in mind, making them easy to access. In particular, a great learning resource for getting up close and exploring things in detail are our 3D models. Investigate our wrecks, artefacts and sites in ways that you have never done so before. We even offer a number of our 3D models in virtual reality.
