Exploring the Norfolk Village
Exploring the Norfolk Village is a book which looks in detail at the history of a number of Norfolk villages. It also illustrates the range of resources which can be used to study any village or town.
Some of the activity sheets linked from this page will be best used for school use, and some for higher level use - we hope you find them of interest.
This activity will be useful for reinforcing understanding of the regions of the county and to focus on the town or village in which it is being used. It can be used as a printed sheet, or the map can be downloaded for use in a suggested computer based presentation.
This sheet has some starter questions on the use of aerial photography, to get the user thinking about identifying features on the photograph and linking them to maps of the same area. It includes access to three aerial photographs of the Terringtons in north-west Norfolk, an area reclaimed over the centuries from the sea.
The villages featured in the book represent different regions of the county. The map on this page enables you to see where the villages are, and acess more detailed local mapping. Again, it uses a GIS system in association with Google Maps to provide the locations.
