The Digby Trail

'Digby Trail' activity
Start the activity

Cook up your own history trail by gathering evidence from a variety of sources, and using it to answer the questions that you - the historian - have set for yourself.

Your starting point is a recipe book written by Sir Kenelm Digby in the 17th century.

We'll help you on the trail with some clues to get you going, and there's a link to our own report to look at when you've finished - how does it compare with yours?
