Welcome to Discover History
Established in 2003, we are a small, friendly team of historical interpreters who like to concentrate on providing historical accuracy and authenticity through demonstrating the personal lives of how our ancestors lived, worked and enjoyed their pastimes.
Covering over a million years of history
We offer an interactive and hands-on experience to people of all ages and abilities. This provides an opportunity to handle both real and historically accurate artefacts and to find out more by talking to our friendly and knowledgeable historical interpreters.
What we can do for you
We have a range of services that we can offer you all year round. Living history displays for visitor attractions, a wide variety of school workshops and practical history sessions, specialist lectures and reminiscence sessions, village fetes, fayres and media work are all possible. But it need not stop there!
If you have an idea, please ask, it may well be possible!
We aim to be accurate in our interpretations and continuously research the periods we portray. All the replica objects we use are based on archaeological finds and other evidence from primary sources to give as real an experience of the past as we possibly can.
Discover History is an excellent resource who we have used on several occasions to supply accurate historical interpretation alongside our museum collections. Last year they worked for us to provide a “real life” element to our Bronze and Stone Age event which was partly funded through the BBC. Following the event we received numerous compliments, the majority of which mentioned the interaction with Discover History as being something that they had really enjoyed. I will certainly be booking them to work with the museum service again the future.
