Historians, museum educators and digital learning experts have today joined together to launch a new web resource, The Age of Revolution, which aims to reinvigorate young people’s interest in a turbulent period of revolution with stunning parallels to the present day.
The project, titled The Age of Revolution, covers global developments between 1775 – 1848 with a UK focus, and at the centre of this is a website that brings a plethora of historical objects from museums across the country, and digital resources relating to the period, into schools.
