The team at Dorset Youth Association support my Fix. They’ve helped me with other heritage projects in the past.
I interviewed Dan Snow, British television presenter and historian in the Dorset County Museum where he was filming for his new documentary on Vikings.
As well as discussing with him the importance of engaging young people in history, we talked about how these objectives could be met using modern media.

June 2015 I gave a presentation about our project and showed our TV film to members of the Dorset History Network. They loved the booklet we produced with the help of Fixers – copies were snapped up on the day!
May 2015 I facilitated a workshop at Learning South West. During this session I introduced geocaching and discussed how to make history relevant for young people.
April 2015 An article about our campaign was featured in Dorchester Life magazine.
