Ordinary Things?

Tom Haward
Associate Professor of History and Holocaust Education
University College London

This session aims to show how the ordinary things owned by people in the past can give us different ways of seeing their extraordinary lives and times. Based on a single object, it shows how careful questioning and a layered approach to revealing information can help students to become active historians themselves, interrogating the past by constructing and testing their own hypotheses about the object.
