Behind the Bell Test: A Town Crier’s Life of Discipline, Drudgery, and Danger

Journey through the eyes  of Nathaniel the town crier to discover what life would be like as a town crier during the American revolutionary time period.   In this interactive presentation you’ll discover what the town crier did and why the town crier played an important role in early American history.  You’ll learn how the town crier kept communities together, innovated occupations decades before they got names, and how the town crier went from essential role in society to an almost extinct relic lost in time.

Suitable for adults and children. Check out selected clips:
