History On Your Doorstep

Studying local history brings the past to life in a very personal way. Rather than events occurring in a distant place and time, a familiar location can provide a meaningful bridge between the past and the present. 

  • slide 1
    Students in Southampton explore their local heritage.


Studying local history enables students to:

  • develop an understanding of how and why their local community has developed in the way that it has, and forge stronger links with that community,
  • compare and contrast history on a local level to a national and international one,
  • appreciate why the area in which they live is worth knowing about, and take pride in where they live,
  • more easily access heritage.

The format and content of the session will be bespoke to you and your area.
