Darkness! Homeschooling WWII and The Blitz

This sixth episode in the special series of Histories of the Unexpected Homeschooling explores DARKNESS and WWII and THE BLITZ. The Unexpected History of darkness is all about the not so ‘dark’ Dark Ages, the Winter of Discontent and blackouts, child labour during the Victorian period, coal mining and hidden histories. James and Sam explore discuss WWII, the Blitz, and air raids, including Morrison Shelters. Look out for instructions on how to be a historian by interviewing your grandparents about their lives – a great way to keep in touch with elderly and vulnerable people during lockdown!
