Exploring global contacts in the past
for global understanding in the future
Joined-Up History and a History of Civilizations in Contact
Founded in 2012, Civilizations in Contact is an educational charity based in Cambridge, England. We have carried out two projects funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, each of which brought history alive for approximately 300 primary school children in Cambridge and East Anglia. They were:
1) Bringing Pompeii and Herculaneum to Cambridgeshire Schools in 2013, and
In April 2015 we ran our first full-scale Holiday History Camp on Alexander the Great for secondary school students. Since then, we have run several more, in August 2015, April 2016, and two in July-August 2017. Information about them can be found in the “Public Policy and Engagement” section of the Chinese Studies Research Group on the website of the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Cambridge (see above link).
We are planning to do more Holiday History Camps in the future on this and other topics.
