Living History

Learning history solely from the flat pages of a textbook can exhaust even the most enthusiastic “history buff.” Living history brings the stories of the past to life. It is the re-enactment of a historical event, a first-person interpretation of a historical figure or the recreation of a past way of life, and it is a great way to share local history.
