What exactly is Living History?

Living history is an activity that incorporates historical tools, activities and dress into an interactive presentation that seeks to give observers and participants a sense of stepping back in time. Although it does not necessarily seek to re-enact a specific event in history, living history is similar to, and sometimes incorporates historical re-enactment. Living history is an educational medium used by living history museums, historical sites, heritage interpreters, schools and historical re-enactment groups to educate the public or their own members in particular areas of history, such as clothing styles, pastimes and handicrafts, or to simply convey a sense of the everyday life of a certain period in history”
