Event Overview: In this virtual excursion your students will go back in time to the 1850s to share an hour in the life of a Mounted Trooper (played by a costumed interpreter) as he talks about the difficulties the police face in overcoming the threat of bushrangers in NSW. The Mounted Trooper has lots of stories to tell about his life in the bush and his exploits in bringing the bushrangers to justice.Our videoconference sessions are interactive and your students are encouraged to engage with the Trooper and ask him questions about his life and work: from what he thinks of bushrangers; to how the battle for the Bush between bushrangers and Troopers is being fought and why he isn��t tempted to seek his fortune on the goldfields.Students will be encouraged to look at and interpret historical source material to support differing views of bushrangers as heroes or villains.Students will see some objects from the museum��s handling collection, some original documents and a number of images and photographs from the era. The session also incorporates activities and group work.
