Collections


It is hoped we will go into production in September 2018 – subject to successful fund-raising.

Each subject ‘Album’ will include a bitesize video introduction plus a range of digital resources including texts, booklists, images, and links to historical societies, online histories and original source documents. Some Albums will be grouped together in ‘Collections’ such as ‘The English Civil War’ or ‘The History Of Trade Unions’.

We hope to develop 40-60 Albums over the first 2 years with a target of over 100 over 5 years.
