Murray Edwards has used his experience of being a historical re-enactor to educate yet give children fun learning about the Ancient periods of Greece and Rome which he has been doing for over ten years on a full time basis. Why choose Murray to visit your School? With the price of coaches today it is cheaper to have Murray in one of his role’s visit your school. He is with you all day, has risk assessments on request, the children do not loose time travelling to a site and has many artefacts for the children to touch. The fee will depend on how many pupils and the distance to travel, long distances may require a fee for accommodation. Child as a greek Hoplite
