Playing With History: Get On Board!

An interactive event comprising a short talk about understanding board games as a form of history, then hands-on game play session for participants. This event aims to challenge preconceptions about what history is and to encourage participants to think about how they themselves do history in something as innocuous as board game play. Games suitable for ages 10 and up; children must be accompanied by parent/caregiver. Bookings essential.

Presented by University of Adelaide, Department of History
