Event description

Description

CGT Battlefields would like to invite you to join us for a free history tour on the 23rd & 24th February 2018.

The tour will be to the battlefields and memorials of the First World War around the Belgian city of Ypres. Whilst you may be thinking that 2018 will draw a close to the recent interest in that period we would like to show you how a trip there can draw out many themes of study on that period and also how some of the thematic subjects that occur in exams, including the changing roles of women, medicine and the changing technology of warfare can be explored around Ypres.

During the trip we would like to demonstrate how any history trip to the sites across Europe with a CGT guide can be used to develop a range of skills for historical understanding including how to interpret sites and approaches to exploring the historic environment over time (associated with the medieval component of GCSE’s). We will explore the diversity of the First World War by ensuring that the roles and contributions of different minority groups are included as an essential thread in a trip.

In this free history taster we would like to introduce you to some of our guides and how they are able to demonstrate a wide range of expertise. The guides are all proven deliverers who can engage with a wide range of audiences. They are able to work with a variety of learning needs to ensure that all school groups get the tour that best suits them and their interests.

Whilst the trip is free, we would ask you to secure your place with a £35 deposit which will be refunded on your return, but will be kept by us if you pull out of the trip at the last moment.

I do hope that you will take this opportunity to join us.
