We have learnt lots already about the life of Tommy Armstrong and what it was like to be a miner. We had a special visit from somebody who works with Beamish Museum who came in and talked to us all about the life of a miner, the life of a miner's wife and what kind of leisure activities miner's would be involved in. We were then lucky enough to handle some of the artefacts and realised you would have to be very strong to be a miner!
