Untold Stories

The activities and primary and secondary sources in Choices Then and Now are linked to fifteen stories.

Samples of these stories may be viewed and downloaded at the bottom of this page.

Many are not well known and are best described as ‘untold stories’.  There are lots more such tales to tell, discover and explore (see our new ‘Stories in Stone’ page). You may well be able to add to these hidden histories and tell your own untold stories……not just from yesterday but also from the here and now!

The stories featured in Choices Then and Now are listed below:
