This hour long lesson (with PowerPoint, clips and worksheets) could be used with any KS3 group to illustrate the importance of source work as historians (and those working in archeology) in order to gain a detailed picture of the past. The lesson focuses on the story of the Pompeii and the evidence left behind that historians have pieced together to create an accurate view of the disaster.
