Origins of Hull


A short extract from the Origins of Hull, a three minute curriculum resource animation made for Hull Heritage Learning for their schools history website.

This animation looks at the development of Hull from a series of medieval villages to a bustling port to a modern day city.

It features King Edward, the Monks of Beverley, the merchant Benjamin Blaydes, Henry the Eighth and two curious children, Hayley and Jacob who find out all about the history of their city.

Thanks to children from St Georges Primary School Hull for providing the voices for this.
