Field Trip: Imperial War Museum – Thursday 19 January
6th December 2016
RPE and History students have a joint event in January.. Visit the online store HERE to book a place.
On Thursday 19 January, History & RPE students have the opportunity to visit the Imperial War Museum in London. Situated in Lambeth and a short walk away from London’s Southbank, the museum tells the story of those whose lives have been shaped by war from the First World War to the present day. It allows us to reflect on the place and legacy of military conflict in our history, religion and culture.
You will have the opportunity to see a number of permanent exhibitions, including the First World War Galleries which contain materials from the Battle of the Somme, the Holocaust Exhibition, and Edmund Clark’s ‘War of Terror’, which focuses on “the hidden experiences of state control during the ‘Global War on Terror.’”
