On Thursday 25th January, Primus expanded their historical knowledge through a number of workshops at the National Army Museum.
‘We handled original artefacts such as uniforms and documents, which made the topics we discussed feel more real. I particularly enjoyed holding ‘Brown Bess’, a musket, an early form of firearm that can only be shot once before having to reload. In the workshops we talked about different viewpoints on the influence and dissolution of the British East India Company. We also debated the ‘Indian mutiny’ of 1857 and how it should be understood, as a rebellion, mutiny, or war of independence. It was an interesting experience which has inspired me to do more research.’ -George, Primus
