History – Life in the Victorian Era.
‘The Victorian era’ describes the time during which Queen Victoria reigned in Britain (1837-1901). Queen Victoria was only 18 years old when she became queen and she ruled Britain for 64 years.
In the story ‘History Hackers: Victorian Venture’, Tilda and Charlie Hacker travel back in time to the Victorian era. The pair befriend two Victorian children but soon find themselves in trouble. While Charlie and Joseph go on the run, Tilda and her new friend, Alice, are trapped in the workhouse! Extracts from this exciting story give us some ideas about what life was like in Victorian Britain.
