Online Learning

Created in accordance with the Draft Curriculum for Wales 2022, our online workshops give an insight into the unique history of South Wales. Designed to support in-school and distance learning, online workshops from the Winding House scratch beneath the surface of the stories of history, while having a lot of fun along the way!

Welcome to Bootcamp, AD 43

Sign up to be put through your paces as you find out what it took to be a soldier in the Roman army in Wales. From military drills to relaxing in the bath-house; explore the life of Roman soldiers, including all the gory details!

All Work and No Play

If you think your school is bad, try being a child in Victorian Wales! Whether it’s working hard down the mines, in the home or in school, you’ll discover things about Victorian childhood they don’t tell you in school...until now.

World War II’s Forgotten Heroes

There was nothing glorious about life as a Bevin Boy in the South Wales coalfield. It wasn’t just back-breaking work but the loneliness, ration pack lunches and the constant fear of enemy bombs made this job pretty horrible! Get ready for beastly bullying, repulsive rats and a LOT of filthy coal dust.
