Historians Builds 60 Foot WW1 Trench in Garden

By November 9, 2012

Follow me on:

Andrew Robertson is an ex-history teacher, current head of a museum, and advised on the War Horse  movie... and he's now built a sixty foot World War 1 style trench in his back garden to help teach how soldiers lived. I'm mentioning this entirely because I'd love to do this myself, but Mr. Robertson has also assembled a group of volunteers to live as troops for twenty four hours, and recorded their efforts for a book. He's made a video for schools, and is considering the web. The Daily Mail has plenty of pictures.
