These classroom resources are based around the theme of Florence Nightingale and home as part of the AHRC-funded project ‘Florence Nightingale Comes Home for 2020’. For an introduction to the subject see the project website and visit our online exhibition.
The resources are designed to encourage students to think about Florence’s work not just in the Crimea but how her home, upbringing, illness and interest in improving homes and hygiene for all, influenced change in both health and domestic environments.
