The 'History Tree' project included a year-long programme of themed walks and visits and a suite of educational materials, distributed for the 2018-19 school year (with a copy of the book) to all primary schools in and around the North York Moors. In 2019-20 the Whitby Museum is working with us to supplement their own educational resources with the ones we've prepared.
