Electronic Imaging For Schools in Powys


In 1995/1996 the County Archives Office - with the support of staff in the Corporate Information Technology Unit - worked on a short term pilot project to produce presentations on local history themes using scanned images of relevant documents from the archives, together with interpretative text. Two communities were covered: Crickhowell and Newtown.


This first presentation explores crime and punishment in Montgomeryshire by focusing in detail on the documents relating to one particular case and putting them in a social and historical context. It is designed especially to be of use to students on the GCSE History course.
