Bearsden Primary School pupils have used museums and archives to step into the boots of Victorian child miners.

See their creative writing on our kids' website Show Me.

There, you'll also find links to images and background information on the history of child miners in the UK museums and archives as well as a list of museums where you can find out more about mining.
