Playing with history

8 January 2016 6 March 2016


Blackwell Hall, Weston Library (Map)


Playing with History celebrates Richard Ballam's donation to the Bodleian of his rich and varied collection of games and pastimes. This small selection of items from the wider collection 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.

Opening times:
Monday to Friday 8.30am-5pm
Saturday 9am-5pm
Sunday 11am-5pm
