Bringing Life to the Past

In Situ:

In position; in context

Without context, “history” is just a set of unlinked names and dates. We need context to help us create connections to our shared past. When we can view history in context, we get into the stories, and engage with all our senses. 

History In Situ is your resource for fresh, coherent strategies to help you share history, and concrete, easily-applied ideas to carry out your historic site’s interpretive goals, enhance a student’s connection to the past, or add to a history event.

We’re loading History In Situ full of free downloads and research to use with your own staff or share with your visitors; a quick tour around our various departments will give you an idea of the range we’re creating.
