1914 and all that

Thu, 22 May 2014 - 12:23pm

What were the military and social concerns of the people of our county in the lead-up to War?  And as events began to force a response in every area of National life, how did Essex people react?


A second chance to hear Ian's sell-out talk, this time at the museum.

Essex history teachers' forum

Fri, 16 May 2014 - 12:56pm

All Essex teachers with an interest in teaching history in Essex primary or secondary schools are invited to join this informal teacher forum that meets 3 to 4 times a year at Chelmsford Museum.


The aim is to support each other as new history curriculum changes take effect, working in partnership to help schools make the most of local heritage and cultural sites.  It is a great place to chat, share ideas and resources, and get help with any areas you want support for - for example, many schools are asking for 'stone age to iron age' ideas.
