There are many conflicting definitions of history. Some believe that it can only be described in structured terms, while others advocate a more inclusive view. Historians Richard Storr and Donald Warren describe the historical study of education not as an examination of institutions, but as comprehensive search for “evidence of learning.”[1] Living history sites are areas where a great deal of evidence of learning can be found.

This digital history project examines the manner in which living history sites are used as learning tools, both by educational institutions and by those engaging in informal pursuits of knowledge.
