Village Uncovered – Marton KS2

A history, drama and art project

In Lincolnshire you can also search the HER records on-line by logging on to the Heritage Gateway at www.heritagegateway.org.uk Contact details of other HERs can also be found on the Heritage Gateway.

Lincs to the Past is a website where not only HER records can be searched, but also those of the Lincolnshire Archives, Museums and Library non-fiction catalogue are available. There are also further learning packages available.

Drama and art can be used in very interesting and innovative ways to interpret any aspect of heritage very effectively, particularly in schools. These media allow the children to learn about heritage through the research they carry out towards the final products, and through role play they may feel empathy with people from the past. They will also learn how to communicate this to an audience in engaging ways. This package will focus on Romans in Marton, and for pupils at Key Stage 2, but the principles could be applied far more widely.

There are many aspects of the National Curriculum with which this pack could help with the teaching of Key Stage 2, in particular:

Art and design:
All aspects of the Curriculum

Design and Technology:
1. Developing, planning and communicating ideas
2. Working with tools, equipment, materials and components to make quality products

3. Group discussions and interaction
4. Drama

3. Knowledge and understanding of places

All aspects of the Curriculum

Battles and Dynasties

Battles and Dynasties

27 May - 3 September 2017

Battles and Dynasties explores the conflict for the crown from Domesday to present day through fascinating documents, paintings and artefacts each fundamental to our local and national heritage. The Exhibition runs from 27 May to 3 September 2017 at the Collection Museum.

It's an unmissable opportunity to see significant pieces on our doorstep here in Lincolnshire, including major objects and paintings that are rarely shown outside of London and some things from private collections that are never on display. Read more about the exhibition here


As part of the Battles and Dynasties the Domesday Book, the country's earliest surviving public record will be on show at Lincoln Castle this summer.

This is a rare and unmissable opportunity to see Domesday on display, in a castle built by the same king that ordered the document. The iconic document will be on display in the David P J Ross Magna Carta Vault. Read more about Domesday at Lincoln Castle here

This exhibition has been made possible as a result of the Government Indemnity Scheme. Lincolnshire County Council would like to thank HM Government for providing Government Indemnity and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and Arts Council England for arranging the indemnity.

Battles and Dynasties has been brought together by Lincolnshire County Council and Lord Cormack in partnership with the Historic Lincoln Trust, The National Archives and the British Library.
