Durham County Record Office: the official archive service for County Durham and Darlington

About this unit

The Children of the British Empire unit was developed as a result of a Learning Links placement, funded by the Museums Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). Lynsey Stoker, teacher at Wolsingham Primary School, worked with the Record Office to develop resources about children in colonial India. The unit was developed using material identified by Lynsey and used by her in class, as well as material used during the class visit to the Record Office.
