Schools sessions - The Great Fire of London
How can we know what happened back in 1666? Using original documents this session will involve drama, eyewitness accounts and creative activities to show what Londoners experienced during the Great Fire of London, how it permanently changed the face of the city and how London recovered and rebuilt.
