“Living History” is a tool used by HISTORIANS to engage the public and inspire them through entertaining interactions to investigate the past. It allows the audience to experience history by transcending from a two-dimensional book to a three-dimensional character.
Living history remains the best mode of presenting and provoking thought about the past.
Used in a teaching setting, "Living History" allows the student to inquire about life of a time past. It allows the visual, sensory, and auditory learners access to the past in a way no other medium in teaching can match. "Living History" makes history personal to the student, and they will long remember the experience.
“Living History” enables the public to suspend belief and travel in time through their mind’s eye to a point in the past and give them a glimpse of what life was like.
