This role-play videoconference workshop, led by historical interpreters, gives your students the chance to debate the causes of the civil wars based on actual documents held here at The National Archives.
The session will take you and your pupils back in time to 1642, where two costumed interpreters play the roles of Puritan Adam Wright and Bishop Richard Hyde. They will lead your pupils, who will either be Royalists or Puritans, in an inspiring debate on the causes of the civil wars.
Pupils will gain an understanding of these documents and their use as evidence for the causes of the civil wars. During the videoconference, they will also have the unrivalled chance to view the original petition and notes from King Charles I's trial.
