Richard Ballam


Richard Ballam talks about the rich collections of games and pastimes he has recently donated to the Bodleian, the subject of the display Playing with History.

Playing with History, on display in Blackwell Hall 8 January-6 March 2016, gives us insights into the presentation of history to children, and the ways in which they were encouraged to engage with contemporary issues such as war and empire through game play.
