Welcome to The Travelling History Company. We are all about immersive, multi-sensory engaging and inspiring history. We discover the past through the biographies of artefacts, documents and diaries and images. Whilst we use some technology, our emphasis is on learning in the great outdoors and away, as far  as is practical, from digital distraction. 


Much of our work is with home education groups, providing both regular and one off history and humanities sessions. We also work with primary and secondary schools delivering the International Baccalaureate curriculum. This is all about  hands on, engaging and interdisciplinary learning through inquiry and creative thinking. 

We have a keen interest in historical astronomy and run a number of events and projects combining history, archaeology and astronomy.


Please explore our website and join us in the discovery of human past and the cosmos!
