The Diggers Learning Resources


We have created a series of worksheets to accompany each of our videos about Winstanley and the Diggers movement. The worksheets encourage the students to make notes on the videos before using their knowledge to tackle some more in depth questions.

For answers to the worksheets, take a look at our teacher’s notes. These notes also contain a fantastic introduction to the history of the Diggers movement, written by our historian in residence Lívia Bernardes Roberge!
