Empire, Inter Wars & Independence

Key stages 3-4
90 minutes

This archive handling session will enable pupils to learn about the history of an individual family and how this gives an insight into the wider history of Ghana and its connection to Britain.

During this session pupils will explore the political structures of the Ewe people in Ghana, everyday life, the process of British colonisation and the way in which the people of the region resisted this.

They will also explore the interwar period as a catalyst for resistance against imperialism and subsequent struggles for independence. Students will view archive material that capture ideas around self-governance, citizenship and decolonisation of Africa and the Caribbean.

Fees apply. Available March-June 2018.
