Year 4 received an interactive class about Tudor Treasures and Cornish Tudors from the Cornwall Record Office. The children learnt about people living in Cornwall during Tudor times and discovered what we can find out about them from inventories of their belongings. They then wrote their own inventories using a quill and ink.
The children also learnt about how Kresen Kernow, Cornwall’s new archive centre, are busy delivering their brilliant project to bring together the world’s largest collection of manuscripts, books and documents related to Cornwall, as well as Cornwall Record Office, the Cornish Studies Library and the Cornwall and Scilly Historic Environment Record, for the first time.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Council, Kresen Kernow will provide a bespoke building, excellent digital facilities, dynamic volunteering opportunities and a diverse range of events, exhibitions and activities, which will improve access and attract wider audiences to celebrate and share in Cornwall’s rich and distinct history.
