Virtual Museum Resources and Activities
We hope these resources provide you with activities to while away a few hours when the museum isn’t open and explore the countryside you might think you know well with our self-guided walk of Borough Hill.
Self-Guided Walk in the Countryside of Daventry
Borough Hill in Daventry is an English Heritage protected site managed by Daventry District Council. Explore the site more via this wonderful story map created by CLASP and Museum of London Archaeology.
Some of the artefacts excavated from the hill are in the museum collection and you can view then via our virtual museum tour.
Download the self-guided walk below and explore the geology, nature and history including the English Civil War history of this beautiful location.
(Note: During the Covid-19 pandemic please take Government advice and guidelines about social distancing into consideration. This walk has been trialed and was safe to walk at the time of publishing but Daventry Town Council and Museum take no responsibility for those choosing to complete this walk).
Battle of Naseby
Design your own Flag just like the General of a Civil War army would have done.
Colour in some Civil War Soldiers – remember Parliamentarians wore plainer clothes than the more decorative and flamboyant Royalists.
Some of the sheets are Word docs that can be downloaded and completed without need to print.
