See below for feedback received following our work with schools:
"Jasmine, Steve and Helen were incredibly enthusiastic and accommodating. The expertise and support
they provided for the students was brilliant and the students learnt a lot about maritime archaeology, the
war at sea and how to use online research and archives. The students were also extremely proud to get
involved with an important local/national project." Seconday School Teacher, Southampton, May 2015
"We have been delighted to welcome maritime archaeologists Jasmine Noble-Shelley and Jose-Oscar Encuentra from the Maritime Archaeology Trust into Year 7’s History lessons this week. In Jasmine’s introductory talk and slide show, she spoke about the number of World War One wrecks that lie on the sea bed and the challenges facing maritime archaeologists in accessing them. This allowed pupils to reflect on the lasting impact of the First World War....As well as bringing our introductory unit of ‘What is History?’ alive, these sessions form part of our commemorative activities to mark the centenary of the start of WW1....Handling artefacts recovered from the sea bed and learning how to record their findings was captivating and provided a quiet moment of thinking and reflecting." Seconday School Teacher, Fareham, Hampshire, October 2014.
"I really enjoyed about finding out about their work and using the real equipment" Year 7 pupil, Fareham, Hampshire, October 2014.
These school sessions have been made possible thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund through our HLF Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War project.
