Local Learning

Myers-Insole Local Learning Community Interest Company aim to put people in charge of their own learning, involving the community from the outset to make the projects about their own heritage meaningful to them and something that can be continued beyond our immediate involvement.

Through working in collaboration with schools, colleges and universities across the city we have created a diverse range of educational resources promoting Bristol’s local heritage.

Our resources can be explored through TIME or PLACE.

TIME

Clicking on Roman will offer you an opportunity to carry out a virtual excavation of what is now the Bristol Dental Hospital, play Roman battleships on Cartesian grids using archaeological finds from across Bristol or barter in the market place before life became theoretically simpler with the introduction of money.

PLACE

Clicking on Avonmouth and Shirehampton will offer you an insight into the significant role the area played in World War One, opportunities to see an extract from Year 6 pupils’ roaming drama produced in collaboration with Bristol Old Vic and read some of the letters that Charlie Day wrote to his family while stationed at Shirehampton Remount Depot in 1916.
