Key Stage 3 | Subject: History | Topic: Stuarts | Session Type: Depth study
The Banqueting House has stood for over 400 years; it is the last remaining part of Whitehall Palace, and was built as a reminder of the monarch’s divine right to rule.
Students will meet and interview a member of the Stuart royal family, on the date of Charles I’s execution. Using primary source 'eyewitness' accounts they will develop their skills of historical enquiry and learn more about the events from the point of view of the royals.
Students will take a walking tour that explores the lost palace of Whitehall. The day is an immersive opportunity to learn more about the English Civil War, using primary sources and costumed interpreters to explore the events through the eyes of a king.
