Workshop Summary

Travel back in time and discover what life was like for evacuated children and their families in World War II. On the tour the group will look at a large map of the river Tyne and try and find out why this area was targeted by German bombers. They will see how the government tried to protect the people of the North East with the use of air raid shelters and gas masks. The group will then be set a practical object handling task to try and work out what our mystery World War II objects were used for.
