The Tudors & Stuarts – Useful Sites for Teachers

Posted by:

For those teachers planning to teach the Tudors next term recommended web sites below:

  • National Maritime Museum – Fact files for all explorers
  • Royal Museum Greenwich – Sets of pictures to download
  • Maryrose.org –  “From 16th April we will be telling the ‘story of the Mary Rose’ as the original objects are progressively removed from display in preparation for the new museum. Visitors are invited to learn about the ship and her crew through artefact handling and hands-on activities. Specially commissioned films, narrated by TV historian Dan Snow, relay the story thus far and explain the science behind the conservation of the artefacts, how they are being treated and protected in perpetuity.”
