Welcome to Discover History
Winner of the Worcestershire Education Awards 2017
Discover History was established in 2003 by Paul Harding and Helen Lee. Both are professional historical performers that like to concentrate on providing historical accuracy and authenticity through demonstrating the personal lives of how our ancestors lived, worked and enjoyed their pastimes.
Covering over a million years of history
We offer an interactive and hands-on experience to people of all ages and abilities. This provides an opportunity to handle both real and historically accurate replica artefacts and to find out more by talking with us.
What we can do for you
We have a range of services that we can offer you all year round. Living history displays for visitor attractions, a wide variety of school workshops and practical history sessions, specialist lectures and reminiscence sessions, village fetes, fayres and media work are all possible. But it need not stop there!
If you have an idea, please ask, it may well be possible!
We aim to be accurate in our interpretations and continuously research the periods we portray. All the replica objects we use are based on archaeological finds and other evidence from primary sources to give as real an experience of the past as we possibly can.
"I have known and worked with Paul and Helen of Discover History for over 10 years and in all that time I have found them to be creative, reliable and very professional. Their services are clearly differentiated for the audience they are dealing with and above all, they are always full of fun and memorable moments! I would not hesitate in recommending their services to schools, community groups, museums and heritage attractions and in an advisory capacity too as their knowledge and passion for history is infectious!"
