Victorian Swansea - People and Possessions

What objects did the people of Swansea have in their houses in the mid-19th century?

Some relate to people's work, some to running the household, some to leisure and pastimes.Objects can tell us a lot about how people lived, how well-off or poor they were and what sorts of materials and manufacturing were available. We can also see what sorts of things were bought and sold, used and treasured, thrown away or lost by people in the past.This Learning Activity has everything you need to run a session yourself in the classroom, and can also link with school workshops at the National Waterfront Museum and Swansea Museum. Key Stage 2History, Computing, Literacy skills Learning Activity PackThis resource provides learning activities for your students using our content.

John Cornwell: Colliery photos

John Cornwell was a freelance photographer who took many photographs of collieries, mostly in south Wales and the English Midlands, both underground and on the surface, during the 1970s and early 1980s. He perfected a method of underground photography using the standard colliery lighting and was able to photograph coal faces, roadways, shafts and equipment with amazing clarity. In addition to photographing working mines he also recorded abandoned mine workings, above and below ground. John Cornwell was also well respected in the broader field of industrial archaeology. He published a number of books on Welsh and English collieries. The copyright of his south Wales images are now owned by National Museum Wales. Key Stage 2History, Art & DesignKey Stage 3Art & Design CollectionWe have collected these items together so that you can quickly and easily use them as resources to create activities for your class.
