Many moons ago I used to make use of a video on Tollund Man. Along with a suitable worksheet, the activity always went down well with year 7s. The aforementioned video has now disappeared. Does anybody out there have a copy? I'll pay the necessary postage and packing expenses if someone can unearth this classic video.

I do have a video in my office which is about Tolland Man. It may or not be the one that you want.

What exactly is your video called?

I will get the video I have copied on Thursday which is the first day our Repreographics man will be back in.

PM with your address if you want me to do this.

Years ago the Schools History Project (I think) used to produce a worksheet/booklet on Tollund Man which used sources to interpret the burial. As a recall it was quite good and went down well in class. I am sure that I should still have a few copies floating around if you are interested.

I thought the schools council thingy on Tollund Man was excellent, and the companion stuff on Mark Pullen was even better. Used it for years with 5th Grade students... I think I might have a couple lying around as well...

If you're looking for an alternative or addition to Mark Pullen and Tollund Man we published a very similar activity last year called The Skeleton in the Fields in SHP's What is History? Year 7 book (although it could be used with Year 5, 6, 8 or whatever).

I pinched the idea from the last programme in the Blood of the Vikings series - on 1066 and stamford bridge - which is on again this week (Friday 12th i think) on UK History.

Details of the book are at

http://www.thinkingh...atishistory.htm

However all the sources are in the trb and it works well in Mark pullen mode if you give out all the sources cut up in an envelope for sorting or drip feed them in - 1 or 2 at a time.
