Murder Mystery for the History Detectives- How did our victim die? What can we find out? How can we use the clues to make a decision? On return to school we were greeted by a crime scene and a request from the History Detectives to help us to solve a baffling case. It all started over 650 years ago – in Medieval Britain.
We used our detective skills to find out about:
Diseases that were sweeping across Europe killing a majority of the population
The possibility of war as the peasants became unhappy with the King’s decisions
The problems with thieves who would rob and murder traders and travelers
The importance of some towns and the facilities they offered.
