Established in 1999 , Historical Lives are specialists in bringing History alive for children and adults  in schools,  museums and at historical sites.

Our  approach is  interactive, fun and highly educational using only the best reproduction artefacts and armour, much of which is created by the talented Blaymire brothers.


Whilst Roman and Greeks still account for the majortity of our engagements , due to demand from teachers and other customers , historical periods covered now include Saxons, Normans, Medieval and Napoleonic times.


Historical  Lives have made well over a thousand memorable school visits so far. Many schools have booked repeat visits yearly for 10 years plus. School holidays and weekends regularly find Historical Lives working at English Heritage sites around the country. 


Please note Historical Lives was formerly know as Past Lives ( name changed to avoid confusion with other sites)
