St Albans Cathedral’s History activities for Secondary Year students.

The story of St Albans starts almost 2000 years ago with the Romans, and there are a number of trails and workshops which explore the different periods of history since then, both on a local and national level. St Albans trails include topics on Alban and the Romans, as well as Medieval history, such as Pilgrimage, the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Black Death, Monastic Life and the Peasants Revolt.

They have a number of art and craft workshops to accompany these too, including Roman Mosaics, Medieval Clay Tiles, Illuminated Lettering and Brass Rubbing.

Most schools combine two activities, usually a trail and a workshop, to make a whole day of their visit. Trails include drama and artefacts to help pupils develop their learning, whilst workshops allow them to create a piece of artwork to take home at the end of the visit.
