Britain's Black History - The Obelisk

Description

This KS3 lesson starter on black history highlights the contributions of people of African and Caribbean descent to British landmarks.

Historian Tony Warner uncovers African influences in a city square, here in the form of an obelisk.

Tony examines the meaning behind this landmark, its ancient African design, and explains how they are often found at key locations around Britain, in an easy-to-understand classroom resource for Year 7 to Year 9 pupils.

The original obelisks date back thousands of years to Africa, where they were placed outside temples, most likely as symbols of rebirth. They are often found in cemeteries and memorials.

This lesson starter is designed for use with Key Stage 3 classes, but can also be used with Key Stage 2 pupils.
