The colourful and informative booklets have been received by over 10,000 children as part of a programme of events to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Great Yarmouth Town Charter and the renovation of Nelson's monument.
James Steward, area museum's officer, said: “The borough's charter celebrations have done much to promote the town's museums and unique historic sites this year. We considered this a great opportunity to promote a particular aspect of our proud heritage to local schools.”
The booklet has been created as part of a package of learning resources linked to the renovation of the monument by the Norfolk Historic Buildings Trust, working in partnership with Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service, The Norfolk Nelson Museum and Great Yarmouth Borough Council.
