Tudor Murder Mystery
This is a ‘murder mystery’ with video and paper based evidence. Children sift through the different exhibits in order to discover the culprit. There are plenty of red herrings and to pick the right suspect for the right reasons requires quite a bit of careful consideration. No - it's not actual historical evidence, but the idea is more to get the children engaging with sources of evidence and questioning their validity. It lasts around 80-90 minutes. Enjoy!
