Bolton - A history of conflict

18th December 2009 at 00:00

Secondary school pupils across Bolton are piecing together the town's role in the English Civil War, thanks to a new history book.

Produced by the Bolton Museum, Aquarium and Archive with the help of local history teachers, Days of Trouble has been produced as a guide to help students "develop a sense of context, engage with serious issues around conflict, and connect local events with the national picture" when studying the 1642-1651 war.

The resource was put together by Tom McCleery, a history teacher at Essa Academy, Nick Tyldesley, Bolton Council's consultant for teaching and learning, and Melissa Wright from Mount St Joseph School. rv.
