We are delighted to offer A-Level students an opportunity to combine a workshop on Tudor history with a special visit to the British Library’s major exhibition Elizabeth and Mary: Royal Cousins, Rival Queens. This exhibition explores the turbulent relationship between Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots and features spectacular documents relating to these queens, including from The National Archives. This special day is for KS5 students.
At The National Archives in Kew students will get the opportunity to handle fascinating Tudor documents on one of these themes:
- Enquiring into Elizabeth I: What can we learn about Elizabeth I’s ruling style from her letters and speeches?
- Crisis in the Reign of Mary I: How far can Mary I’s reign be considered a time of crisis?
- Tudor Rebellions: How seriously did they challenge the authority of the crown?
At the British Library students will enjoy an exclusive visit slot in the exhibition, exploring key themes and encountering the incredible items on display. This session is led by Learning Facilitators.
We have three dates available:
- Thursday 13 January – Morning session at The National Archives, afternoon session at The British Library.
- Thursday 20 January – Morning session at The National Archives, afternoon session at The British Library.
- Tuesday 1 February – Morning session at The British Library, afternoon session at The National Archives.
