Newspapers are full of information which provides us with important, primary evidence about the past. As with all historical evidence, there is more to a newspaper than first meets the eye.

The Past from the Press explores issues such as news values, bias, subjectivity and propaganda and encourages students to ‘read between the lines’ of historic and contemporary newspapers.

Although the exhibition has broad appeal, it is of particular interest to students of History and English at both primary and secondary level and has been specially written with them in mind.
