Frances Durkin

Frances Durkin believes in making history both accessible and fun. The Histornauts series is a well-conceived project from Small publishing in which a group of children from the present-day go back in time to explore life in different historical periods through their encounters with ordinary people.

Frances joined Nikki Gamble In The Reading Corner to talk about the series and her approach to historical study.

Visit the Acropolis, watch the activities that inspired the Olympic Games and paint masks for a thrilling Greek tragedy at the amphitheatre. An exciting mix of story, facts and activity!
