Welcome to the Churchill Archives Centre education website. Here you can access just a few of the unique holdings of Churchill Archives Centre, and gain insight into some of the great events that shaped the modern world, beginning with the cataclysmic upheaval of World War I and now going on to the build up to World War II. Try out our exercises on the Churchill Era, and discover more about people, places and events in the Glossary section. There is also further information for Teachers.
All materials may be freely copied for use in schools. Most PC users should be able to print material from this website by right-clicking in the separate window containing the extract or illustration.

Although this web-site should have something for anyone with an interest in the history of the last century, it has been chiefly designed with exercises for use by schools in England and Wales, and relates to the GCE history curriculum for A' and AS level. Further information is available on Churchill Archives Centre's Teachers page. For schools in Scotland, please see our separate site at http://digital.nls.uk/gallery.cfm.
Please note that this site is still under development.

It has been assembled and designed by Natalie Adams, Giles Agnew, Sean Lang, Gavin McGuffie, Allen Packwood and Katharine Thomson.
