The History of Mysteries in Time

Where does your love of history come from?

As a teacher, I enjoyed teaching most subjects, but history has its own sparkle for me. Having a history teacher for a mother tends to encourage a love of history! My summers were spent visiting various castles, manor houses or museums.

Did you love history in school?

I loved learning about history when I was at school. I remember being fascinated by the intricate detail of Queen Elizabeth I’s elaborate gowns, in comparison with the gruesome process of mummification in Ancient Egypt! I also remember interviewing my grandparents about daily life during the Second World War for a school project. Hearing my grandmother’s stories really brought the history to life for me. This is our aim with Mysteries in Time, to bring history to life.

What was the inspiration for Mysteries in Time?

In order to understand history, I think you need to be able to imagine what a place looked like and what it felt like to live there. That was the inspiration; we wanted to immerse children in the history by basing the various activities around a fictional story. Max and Katie soon came to life!

In this digital world, we see Mysteries in Time as a refreshing step back to the days before computer screens took over. Children can experience the simple excitement of receiving a gift through the post each month, while discovering new worlds in a fun and creative way. We feel there are endless possibilities for historical topics to cover, so many times and places that are waiting to be explored!
