A Day in the Past


                Welcome to "A Day in the Past", and thank you for visiting my website. This is a new venture which is still growing, as is this website. 

My name is Louise Archer and with “A Day in the Past” I aim to bring history to life for pre-school and KS2 children in a fun and interactive way in the Cambri
dge area. I use quality replicas of authentic historical items and clothing. 
Currently I offer experiences for the Roman and Viking/Saxon age, but hope to offer further periods, such as Stone Age, in the future. I have been a re-enactor of both these periods for 15 years (Viking) and 10 years (Roman), including 6 years with my own two children accompanying me. Seeing how life was in the past opens up a new and unknown world to children very different to the one they live in. I cover everyday life, such as food, childhood, clothing as well as the military parts of history.
For the sessions I will come to your setting with my equipment and dressed in period clothing. 
I am DBS checked, through volunteering at our local pre-school and have Public Liability Insurance.

Please see the calendar on the right for days I am available for booking.
If you have any questions or would like to book a visit please contact me by email or telephone.
