In this session students have first hand encounters with carefully selected primary sources from the Museum’s archive. Students are given the challenge of creating case studies of the role of the men and women of the North East Railway in WW1, working independently or collaboratively. The session helps them deepen their understanding of the War and emphasises the different experiences that individuals had.
