Archive Resource Packs

These packs have been developed to introduce schools to the resources in the Labour History Archive and Study Centre at the People’s History Museum.  The resource packs have been developed to link directly to our popular Living History workshops and they can be used to follow up a visit, or can just be downloaded and used on their own.  Alongside the facsimiles of original archival documents are some suggested activities for you to do at school.  If you have any feedback, queries or suggestions then please contact the learning team on 0161 838 9190 or email learning@phm.org.uk.
