Local History Topic : Strikes and flying pickets
Today we are starting out new topic. In this topic we are going to learn about the history of mining, mines locally and the impact of the mines closing. It is important that, as historians, we can use a range of resources to widen our understanding of a certain time. Resources such as documents, photos, diary extracts and video extracts.
In today's lesson we would like you to visit the website below to look at a range of resources. Your task is to make a column of things you think you know about mining based on the resources and then a second column with questions you have about mining - things you would like to find out about mining.
